Dataset for "Thermal comfort standards in the Middle East: Current and future challenges"



This dataset consists of 1,101 valid thermal comfort votes and 787 incomplete thermal comfort records that were collected between 2017 and 2019, during summer and winter. Each record includes measurement of four physical parameters affecting thermal sensation: air temperature (Ta), mean radiant temperature (Tr), relative humidity (RH), and air movement speed (Va). The measurements were coincident with the time of each individual survey of thermal sensation vote (TSV), to be compared to each other. Data were collected in 31 air-conditioned buildings in Amman, Doha, Dubai, and Jeddah. Measurements were done in four occupancy types: offices, schools, hospital, and mosques.
