Some Maternal and Social Factors in Relation to the Birth Weight of Infants
This investigation was a part of a study designed to measure the impact of air craft noise on the course and outcome of pregnancy. Although there is evidence for the importance of noise as a determinant of the course and outcome of pregnancy [1,2], it continues to be difficult to establish direct correlations under the conditions of various ecological influences.
