Asian Socio-Acoustic Survey Data Archive (A-SASDA)


A number of socio-acoustic surveys on community responses to noise have been conducted in Japan. They obtained micro-data consisting of noise exposure data and reactions to noise by respondents. While dose-response relationships determined from the results of such socio-acoustic surveys can form the basis for effective noise policy, micro-data has yet to be accumulated into a unified system. Thus, the Japanese Government faces many difficulties in reviewing noise policy and creating effective measures.
The Institute of Noise Control Engineering/Japan (INCE/J) established  sub-technical subcommittee called the Socio-Acoustic Survey Data Archive in 2009 for the purpose of developing an archive of community responses to noise. By summarizing all relevant results that have been published in this field, we have actively managed the Japanese Socio-Acoustic Survey Data Archive (J-SASDA) since 2011.
Additionally, we intend to establish the Asian Socio-Acoustic Survey Data Archive (A-SASDA) in the near future in collaboration with researchers from neighboring Asian countries, including South Korea, China, Hong-Kong, Vietnam, and Thailand. Community responses to noise vary among countries. We believe that Asian countries will find our data archives both useful and necessary when reviewing and developing their own new noise policies.
This home page is designed specifically for the A-SASDA, and as such we encourage Asian researchers to join our network for the purpose of improving their future global noise policies. A centralized data archive is important because it contributes to the development of future noise studies. Moreover, the data are maintained in a format that facilitates their secondary use, such that the data can be retrieved anytime in the future when additional analysis may be deemed necessary.
We hope that many researchers will understand our purpose in developing this data archive and website and be willing to collaborate with us. If you are interested in using or depositing data into the archive, please contact us. We look forward to talking with you in greater detail.
