Abstract(s)This paper presents an urban environmental quality health index based on noise levels and air pollutant concentrations. The proposed model makes use of multi-criteria techniques for combining, aggregating and standardising noise levels and pollutant concentration data. The dose-effect relationships in relation to the impact of noise and air pollution exposure on human health are comprised in the weighting and standardisation process. This allows the assessment of combined noise and air pollution risk within human health context.
