Abstract [en]

The aim of the present study was to identify possible moderator variables that influence annoyance due to aircraft noise. The data analysed here were ascertained by extended questionnaires in three studies within the COSMA-Project that was funded by the European Union. There were a Field Study and a Telephone Interview, each performed with residents living in the vicinity of the airports Cologne-Bonn, London Heathrow or Stockholm- Arlanda and a Laboratory Study performed with residents living near the airports Budapest, Lyon or Paris. In each of the three studies (and the overall 9 subgroups) the participants completed extended questionnaires on long- Term annoyance. In the field study sleep behaviour and acute annoyance that was rated each hour were additionally ascertained over a period of 4 days. Using a logistic regression model analysis odds ratios were determined for possible moderators. Based on the results a model was created that shows the most important negative and positive influences.
