NOISE NUISANCE CAUSED BY ROAD TRAFFIC IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS: PART III

The results of a social survey of 2933 respondents at 53 sites in greater London have already been reported in parts I and II of this series of papers, which were concerned largely with prediction of noise nuisance over a wide range of traffic conditions. The present paper is devoted to closer examination of a number of factors which mediate individual responses to noise, notably individual differences in noise sensitivity. This is influenced by differences in age, sex and occupational class, and appears to extend beyond attitudes to noise. The data from the total sample has been submitted to canonical correlation and automatic interaction detector analysis and the results of these procedures confirm the conclusions presented in parts I and II. /Author/TRRL/
