|Abstract: ||This paper reports the first meta-analysis and most extensive review of stated preference studies of transportation noise nuisance. The meta-analysis is based on a newly compiled data set of 258 values from 49 studies and 23 countries and spanning more than 40 years. Contrast this with the most extensive meta-analysis of the more conventional hedonic pricing approach which includes 53 noise valuations. Moreover, the sample compares favourably with the 444 observations from the very first meta-analysis of the value of travel time savings which is by far the most widely examined parameter in transport planning.
A particularly significant finding of the study is that the intertemporal income elasticity is close to one, somewhat larger than the cross-sectional income elasticity typically obtained from individual studies. This demonstrates the importance of distinguishing the effects of
income variations that occur over time, which tend to drive policy, from variations across
individuals at one point in time, and such findings are typical of those observed in other
markets. Importantly, the values derived are transferable across countries and may be used
to benchmark existing evidence and provide values in contexts where none exist.
Other key results are that values for aircraft noise exceed those for other modes, whilst
those exposed to higher noise levels and those who are highly annoyed also have higher
values in line with expectations. A wide range of design effects were tested but few were
significant and these included the consumer surplus measure, the representation of noise
and the context.|
