An analysis was done to look at the differences in the way occupants perceive the office environment. The surveys were done in an office with multinational workers in Japan. The 406 returned questionnaires were grouped by nationality and gender. 26% reported a comfortable working environment. There was a significant neutral temperature difference of 3.1 deg. C between the Japanese female group and the non-Japanese male group. Japanese females reported the highest frequency of sick building syndrome of any of the groups.
