The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment uses an array of eight underground detectors to study antineutrinos from six reactor cores with different baselines. Since the start of data-taking from late 2011, Daya Bay has collected the largest sample of reactor antineutrino events to date, and has made the most precise measurement of the neutrino oscillation parameters sin22θ13 and Δm2ee. Using the data from the four detectors in the near experimental halls, Daya Bay has made a high statistics measurement of the absolute reactor antineutrino flux and spectrum. In this paper we will present this measurement and its comparison to predictions based on different flux models.
