Exposure Perception as a Key Indicator of Risk Perception and Acceptance of Sources of Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields

Figure 5

Effects of RF EMF exposure reduction on the acceptance of base stations in dependency of risk perception groups. Acceptance measured by the question “roughly at what distance (meters) would you accept a base station close to your home?,” “ if the exposure was reduced by 30%?,” “ if the exposure was reduced by 50%?,” and “ if the exposure was reduced by 70%?” Risk perception measured by the question “how dangerous do you consider living close to the building with the antennas,” on 5-point Likert scale from “1 = not dangerous” to “5 = very dangerous.” Meaning of lines: blue = 0% exposure reduction, green = 30% exposure reduction, yellow = 50% exposure reduction, and violet = 70% exposure reduction.
