Noise exposure information under the END Directive (2002/49/EC)

Data Table
This database contains information on the number of people exposed to 5 decibel (dB) bands for two indicators "Lden : 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, >75" and "Lnight. : 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, > 70". The database covers the noise sources specified in the END (major roads, major railways, major airports and urban agglomerations) and the corresponding number of people exposed to each of the noise sources inside urban areas and outside urban areas. Percentage of people exposed has also been calculated for comparative purposes. The reporting requirements were set to start as from 2005, and the reporting cycle specified in the END is 5 years, with the exposure data submitted in 2007 and in 2012 afterwards. The database includes information submitted by the Member States up to 15 April 2016.
