The revised data files for the Community Noise and Health Study (CNHS) are now available through Statistics Canada's Research Data Centres.

This study, also referred to as the Wind Turbine Noise and Health Study, collected self-reported and physical health measures from a sample of individuals living in several communities situated in proximity to wind turbines.

The CNHS was conducted in partnership with Health Canada, whose experts will produce a series of reports and analyses based on these data.

The sampling design of the study does not support the production of descriptive statistics that can be generalized to a larger population.

A summary report of results from the study, that takes into account the complexities of the sampling strategy and its limitations, is available on the Health Canada website.
