Determination of Residents’ Perception on Health and Residential Value from Telecommunication Tower
In recent decades, as a result of cellular phone systems and the rapid increase in the number of cellular phone users, public and scientific worry about probable health dangers, particularly exposure to Electromagnetic Fields, has grown among the general public and scientists (EMFs). The goal of this study is to find out how Malaysian citizens feel about the health effects of telecommunication base stations and how that affects property value. Data from a face-to-face survey (N=509) done in all Malaysian states. The participants were required to fill out a standardised questionnaire that measured significant psychological and psychobiological reactions. The Chi-square test with Fisher’s exact and binomial logistic regression were employed in Stata Software for statistical analysis. Only one health symptom, headache, was statistically significant for both residents who live close to base station (300m) and those who live far from base station (>300m), according to the findings. The data show that the appearance of a telecommunication tower has no bearing on the price of a home, with the exception of one health condition, weariness. This document also includes a list of recommendations.
