Abstract

auditory and non-auditory effects and cause the lack of concentration and disability of learning and communication. The Faculty of Engineering was chosen to conduct the questionnaire because the students have both theoretical and practical courses and they spend one-third of their day in the laboratories, so it is expected they exposure to noise more than other faculties’ students A questionnaire was conducted to understand the effect of noise on student behavior and whether they could classify the sounds that they heard as noise and determine the noise sources (indoor, outdoor) and the noisiest places (classroom, laboratory, and campus). 438 students participated in this questionnaire from all stages, and they covered eight engineering departments in the Faculty of Engineering, Mustansiriyah University. A statistical analysis of the questionnaire found that 39.5%, 46%, 32% and 49% of students suffered from noise in classrooms, laboratories, open spaces and closed spaces (campus), respectively. In the actual situation, the effects that students experience can be arranged in the following descending order: feeling discomfort, hearing difficulty, raising the voice when speaking, lack of concentration, headache, tinnitus and nausea. Using a sound and vibration meter with the analyzer, the noise levels in dBA were measured in the noisiest places that the students mentioned. The noise levels exceed the standard limitation that organizations and agencies such as the WHO determined.

المستخلصيعد رأس المال الفكري محور اهتمام مختلف الوحدات الاقتصادية من اجل بقائها وديمومة نشاطها ، حيث تواجه تلك الوحدات صعوبة في قياس رأس المال الفكري لها وخصوصاً الوحدات الصناعية فيها.ويعتبر ذلك تحدياً كبيراً لها نظراً لحاجتها الماسة إلى المعلومات خصوصاً تلك المتعلقة بتحديد كلفه وما يحققه من عوائد والمعلومات المتعلقة بأهميته (أهمية وجوده في تلك الوحدات) وما هي الأساليب الملائمة لعملية قياسه وتشخيص أهم الصعوبات التي تتطلب مواجهتها من قبل المحاسبين فيها لعملية قياسه كون المقاييس المتبعة حالباً محل جدل من قبل المحاسبين خصوصاً أن تلك التحديات المتعلقة بقياس رأس المال الفكري ترجع إلى طبيعة رأس المال هذا فضلاً عن أن المحاسبين في تلك الوحدات لا يمتلكون المعرفة التامة بكيفية قياسه كونه:--غير مادي-صعوبة تحديد قيمته بدقة-قد يكون في بعض الأحيان غير قابل للقياس المباشر.

Male gender (60.3% of enuretic children), young age (37% of enuretic children at age 5-6 years old), positive family history of nocturnal enuresis (founded in 71.7% of enuretic children), large family size and increased number of household children (half of enuretic children living in extended family and household children more than four), these were significantly associated with the prevalence of nocturnal enuresis. Among the enuretic children, about half of them (45.1%) had moderate school performance, 50.5% had positive history of recurrent urinary tract infection and 63% had behavioral disturbances, so these factors were significantly associated with the prevalence of nocturnal enuresis.Conclusion:Nocturnal enuresis is a common problem among school children, with four-fold risk among children with disturbed behavior. Most of the families do not have adequate attention about enuresis and most of the enuretic children don’t receive professional treatment.Key words:Nocturnal enuresis, prevalence, behavioral disturbance, and Rutter Behavioral Questionnaire.
