Abstract

Abstract At the present time the most commonly used schemes for sampling community noise levels involve collection of one “ x-minute” sample, once each hour, over a 24-hour period, where “ x-minutes” is less than 60 minutes. This paper is concerned with the validity of this method of sampling. An alternative sampling scheme is presented and discussed, which reduces the probability that significant differences between the sample estimates and the time (60-minute) values will result.
