1. Introduction

Dear Respondent,

Thank you for participating in a research project to study sound in the New York City subway system. On the following few pages you will find a questionnaire that asks a variety of questions about your personal experiences in the subway. It should take you about 15 minutes to complete. This is an anonymous survey; you will not be required to provide any identifying information. The answers that you provide will only be used for this research project, which will culminate in a doctoral dissertation at New York University. If you have any questions or concerns about completing the questionnaire or about being in this study, you may contact me at the address below.
