Abstract The 2016 National Academies of Sciences report "Hearing Health Care for Adults: Priorities for Improving Access and Affordability" included a call to action for government agencies to strengthen efforts to collect, analyze, and disseminate population-based data on hearing loss in adults.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: The 2016 National Academies of Sciences report "Hearing Health Care
      for Adults: Priorities for Improving Access and Affordability" included a call to
      action for government agencies to strengthen efforts to collect, analyze, and
      disseminate population-based data on hearing loss in adults. METHODS: CDC
      analyzed the most recent available data collected both by questionnaire and
      audiometric tests of adult participants aged 20-69 years in the 2011-2012
      National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to determine the
      presence of audiometric notches indicative of noise-induced hearing loss.
      Prevalence of both unilateral and bilateral audiometric notches and their
      association with sociodemographics and self-reported exposure to loud noise were 
      calculated. RESULTS: Nearly one in four adults (24%) had audiometric notches,
      suggesting a high prevalence of noise-induced hearing loss. The prevalence of
      notches was higher among males. Almost one in four U.S. adults who reported
      excellent or good hearing had audiometric notches (5.5% bilateral and 18.0%
      unilateral). Among participants who reported exposure to loud noise at work,
      almost one third had a notch. CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH
      PRACTICE: Noise-induced hearing loss is a significant, often unrecognized health 
      problem among U.S. adults. Discussions between patients and personal health care 
      providers about hearing loss symptoms, tests, and ways to protect hearing might
      help with early diagnosis of hearing loss and provide opportunities to prevent
      harmful noise exposures. Avoiding prolonged exposure to loud environments and
      using personal hearing protection devices can prevent noise-induced hearing loss.
