Method and Interpretation of Surveys on Noise Annoyance

Authors

Abstract

Major practical considerations during the design and analysis of sociological noise surveys are briefly discussed, particularly as they relate to choice and interpretation of statistical tests. The discussion concentrates on the appropriate use of data and scale transformations which may not only assist in the interpretation of results but also clarify seeming discrepancies both within a study as well as between apparently conflicting results reported in the literature. Applicable scale transformations are supported by the specification and discussion of theoretically based quantitative functions which may be used to predict human response from noise-level measures of loudness.
