The European Regional Office of the World Health Organization (WHO, 2018) recently dramatically lowered its former (WHO, 2000) recommendations for cumulative aircraft noise exposure levels associated with risks of adverse public health effects. WHO’s recommendations, although lacking the force of la...

The new WHO Environmental Noise Guidelines for the European Region have recommendations for limiting noise exposure associated with adverse health effects. The limits are said to be based on a systematic review of existing evidence. This paper gives a systematic assessment of the presented evidence ...

Two standardized annoyance reaction questions for community noise surveys and a corresponding verbal response scale has been translated into the Slovenian language according to ICBEN protocol. The modifiers for the verbal scale were selected through a web-based questionnaire. It is recommended that ...

Social surveys have been the conventional means of evaluating the annoyance caused by transportation noise. Sampling and interviewing by telephone, mail, or in person are often costly and time consuming, however. Data collection by web-based survey methods are less costly and may be completed more q...

The relationship between the prevalence of noise induced annoyance and the noise exposure is traditionally described by a cumulative noise metric such as DNL. Such dose-response functions have no restrictions regarding how the dose has been derived, e.g. either a large number of low level noise even...

The International Commission on Biological Effects of Noise, ICBEN, has recommended the use of two standardized annoyance reaction questions for community noise surveys. ICBEN has also published a detailed protocol for translating these questions together with the corresponding response scale into o...

Although aircraft noise-induced annoyance prevalence rates vary greatly for similar noise exposure levels in different times and places, some suggest that communities have recently reacted more strongly to aircraft noise than in the past. Others regard claims of greater annoyance over time at simila...

This analysis of new and previously collected data was done to validate the efficacy of recommendations for limits regarding sound exposure levels at live pop concerts. After the World Health Organization, WHO, recommended limiting the sound levels at such concerts to avoid noise induced hearing dam...
