Neutral current Drell Yan cross section is sensitive to the parton distribution functions of the proton and electroweak corrections. The measurements for two distinct kinematic regions, below the Z boson mass peak and above are performed by the ATLAS collaboration using 7 TeV pp collision data. The results are compared to NNLO QCD predictions corrected for NLO EW effects calculated using various parameterizations of the parton distribution functions.
