Noise health: investigating casual relationships using Irish health data

The overall aim of the Noise-Health project is to provide an evidence-base for understanding the risk to public health from population exposure to environmental noise from transportation sources. The research will address the concepts of the noise-stress relationship, dose-effect relationships, and health-promoting environments in cities as a means to inform policy and practice improving population health and well-being. This is a joint research programme in conjunction with University College Dublin. This research is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency.
