The purpose of the guidelines proposed in this report is to provide decision-makers, in both the public and private sectors, with analytic procedures which can be uniformly used to express and quantify impacts from noise, so that such impacts can be readily understood and fully considered within the comparative evaluations which constitute noise environment decisions. The procedures contained within the guidelines are applicable to the preparation of environmental noise assessments, and environmental impact description of noise environment changes would be useful. The procedures allow a user to arrive at an objective, and for most situations, quantitative definition of noise impact. In many situations, the procedures will allow the calculation of a single number descriptor which expresses the total noise impact of a proposed project on the population exposer.
