The LHC and Tevatron Higgs data are interpreted as constraints on an effective theory of a Higgs boson with the mass m/,- 125 GeV. We focus on the h →γγ, h → ZZ*→ 4l, and h → WW*→ 2l2v channels at the LHC, and the bb channel at the Tevatron, which are currently the most sensitive probes of a Higgs with such a mass. Combining the available data in these channels, we derive the favored regions of the parameter space of the effective theory. We further provide the relevant mapping between the effective theory and the relevant rates, allowing for a more precise extraction of the favored region to be derived by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations.
