Abstract

Noise pollution is one of the main forms of urban environmental pollution and is becoming more urgent, direct impact on the environment and quality of life of people, especially in developing countries. Consequently, the purpose of this cross-sectional study was to determine factors related to self-concerned from noise. Subjects were 320 people among five residential zones of Thot Not district, Can Tho city, Vietnam. Data were collected by using a standardized questionnaire and noise measurement in the community, the noise level was transferred into the Noise At Work version 3.32 software for creating the noise mapping of each residential zone. Pearson’s correlation, Spearman’s rank correlation, independent test and one-way ANOVA were performed in the analysis. The findings revealed three factors significantly associated with self-concerned from noise (P < 0.05). Those factors were age group, living time in the community and noise level. Part of the one-way analysis of variance indicated that the difference was statistically significant with the level of self-concerned from noise in five residential zones (F = 543.77, p < 0.001). These were crucial factors to determine preventive measurement in further research.
