Although stated choice applications to the valuation of transport noise remain novel, there is now a growing body of evidence from which to draw insights into the results and the appropriateness of the methodological approach. This paper draws on available evidence, including four studies by the authors utilising stated choice experiments to value aircraft noise at Lyon, Manchester and Athens airports and road traffic noise in Edinburgh and Lisbon alongside other key studies. The paper examines the extent to which stated choice experiments can provide insights that the more traditional revealed preference approaches cannot, such as exploring variation by time of day and day of week, the influence of socio-economic and attitudinal variables and preferences for policy options based on experience. Challenges in experimental design are also addressed especially with respect to presentation and linkage to objective measures of noise and the degree to which design can reduce incentives to bias.
