Several aspects of the associated vector boson production in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV and √s = 8 TeV at the LHC have been recently investigated by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations. The production cross sections of the W and Z bosons in association with jets, as well as their ratio and the double differential cross section in the Z + jets final state are presented. Measurements of the cross sections of a vector boson (W or Z) in association with heavy flavour jets (b, c) and a top quark pair are also described. The measured cross sections are compared to expectations based on next-to-leading order QCD calculations as well as on Monte Carlo simulations.
