About The Study: The findings of this study suggest that bilateral hearing loss is nearly ubiquitous among older U.S. individuals, prevalence and severity increase with age, and hearing aid use is low. Deeper consideration of discrete severity measures of hearing loss in this population, rather than binary hearing loss terminology, is warranted.
Authors: Nicholas S. Reed, Au.D., of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, is the corresponding author.
