The purpose of this paper is to concentrate on the perceived noisiness components of community noise criteria, and to show that useful contributions towards the understanding of the "noise problem" may be achieved if closer account is taken of the inadequacies shown by existing rating-scale units. It should be noted that the "noise problems" is not limited to the reactions of noise exposed "communities". The noise "sources" themselves are being increasingly subjected to control and legislative procedures. These restrictions often impose high development, production and operating costs. Therefore, when required to meet obligatory noise standards, the rating scale unit used should not be seen to favor one "source" rather than another.
