Developing a Methodology to Value the Impacts of Noise Related Sleep Disturbance on Productivity - NO0243

Description
The project will look to provide a robust methodology to value the impacts of noise related sleep disturbance on productivity using the established %highly sleep disturbed dose response function.
Objective
There is an established link between enviornmental noise and sleep disturbance. The aim of this research is to provide a robust methodology to value the impacts of environmental noise related sleep disturbance on prductivity. Providing us with marginal values in £ per decibel change per household exposed to road, rail and aircraft noise
