  1. The impact of the Amsterdam aircraft disaster on reported annoyance by aircraft noise and on psychiatric disorders.

    Article - En anglais


    On 4 October 1992 a plane crashed on the south-eastern (SE) borough of Amsterdam.

    This study examines the effects of this disaster on the reported annoyance caused by aircraft noise and on psychiatric disorders measured by the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ), in an ongoing Health Interview Survey (HIS).


    In the HIS 5092 people were interviewed; 1006 before the accident and 305 in the SE borough.

    Odds ratios (OR) were computed comparing the period before the disaster with the 8 months thereafter.
