Background:
The FAA has undertaken a multi-year research effort to quantify the impacts of aircraft noise exposure on communities around commercial airports in the United States (US). The FAA collected data from adult residents living around 20 US airports. Just over 10,000 people completed and returned the mailed questionnaire. 
 

The Neighborhood Environmental Survey shows that a higher percentage of people are annoyed today than were annoyed in the past, at similar levels of noise exposure - using the FAA’s standard noise exposure measure. Have people just gotten more sensitive? Has aircraft noise changed in a way that the standard exposure measure doesn’t take into account? What do you think is different?
 

College Park's Ward I Councilman Ambrose Clay has provided the following link to access important NES information
