Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A questionnaire survey was carried out among the residents of Debrecen (E-Hungary), according to which, it can be referred to as a noisy town of Hungary. Disturbances caused by road traffic, being the foremost source of noise, are evident throughout, especially along the main transport routes. The duration of noise nuisance experienced in residential areas is considerable combined with the noise at workplaces and in the street. The effects of perceived noise nuisance on the quality of life is represented by occasional or regular (not necessarily frequent) sleep disturbances, primarily among the residents living near roads with heavy traffic. Based on the results of the survey, by applying a noise complaint index, the spatial pattern of the level of noise nuisance was drawn along with a cognitive noise map revealing the noisiest locations within the town. - (AM)
