The article that appeared at page 23, Vol. 17, January-February 2015 issue of Noise and Health[1], there had been multiple errors due to misinterpretations by the author during the proof-reading process. Although the changes do not affect the results, the following changes need to be incorporated in:

  1. At page 26, the sentence, "Quality indices were calculated by assigning Qi of 1.00 to Sørensen et al. (9) as the "best" study according to the list of predefined safeguards against bias and then dividing the score of each of the other studies by the score of Sørensen et al. (9) (i.e., 37). (26)" should appear as "Quality indices were calculated by assigning Qi of 1.00 to Sørensen et al.(9) as the "best" study according to the list of predefined safeguards against bias and then dividing the score of each of the other studies by the score of Sørensen et al.(9) (i.e., 40).(26)"
  2. At page 28, [Table 1] (Heidemann et al. column, APC row), the sentence, "Sex, age, smoking, heating of house/flat, education, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, sport, history of diabetes (4)" should appear as, "Sex, age, smoking, education, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, sport, history of diabetes (4)"
  3. At page 28, [Table 1] (Heidemann et al. column, AEC row), the sentence, "Railway and airport noise, air pollution (3)" should appear as, "Heating of house/flat (3)0"
  4. At page 28, [Table 1] (Heidemann et al. column, ATISB row), the sentence, "Heavy traffic ≈ 70-80 subjective dB (L den) (0)" should appear as, " Heavy traffic ≈ 65-70 subjective dB (L den ) (0)"
  5. At page 28, [Table 1] (Sørensen et al. column, AEC row), the sentence, "No adjustments (0)" should appear as, " Railway and airport noise, air pollution (3)"
  6. At page 28, [Table 1] (Sørensen et al. column, OQS row), "37", should be changed to, "40"
  7. At page 28, [Table 1] (Eriksson et al. column, ATISB row), the sentence, "No transformations (3)" should appear as, " Aircraft noiseroad traffic noise (0)"
  8. At page 28, [Table 1] (Eriksson et al. column, OQS row), "30", should be changed to " 31"
  9. At page 28, [Table 1] (Selander et al. column, OQS row), "29.5", should be changed to " 30"
  10. At page 29, the sentence "Conversely, only Heidemann et al. (13) adjusted their analyses for railway and aircraft noise, and air pollution" should appear as "Conversely, only Sørensen et al.(9) adjusted their analyses for railway, aircraft noise and air pollution."
