Full text not available from this repository.


Data on aircraft noise and annoyance levels were obtained for households in Manchester and Lyon as part of a study investigating the value of noise. Annoyance was assessed on a five point verbal scale consistent with international standards. Noise indices obtained included Leq, Lden, Ldn, NA65 and NA≥0. This data allowed us to look in some detail at levels of annoyance from aircraft noise and influences on levels of annoyance. In this paper we report: • The relative importance of aircraft noise amongst other factors impacting on quality of life • Annoyance from aircraft noise relative to other sources of noise • Reported disturbance of activities and other concerns with respect to aircraft noise • Variations in annoyance levels by time of day • The relationship between annoyance and perceived noise • Models using ordinal regression to explore the relationship between annoyance levels, noise indices and a range of other variables including socio-economic characteristics and contextual variables also self reported exposure to aircraft noise; perceived levels of noise and sensitivity to noise.
