The report summarizes the planning, conduct and results of a noise survey in 100 sites in urban areas across the United States and the use of these results, coupled with other existing data, to provide an estimate of the outdoor noise levels experienced in residential areas by the United States population. It concludes that there are more than 75 million people living in areas in excess of 60 decibels and 600 thousand in areas in excess of 80 decibels.
