||Prevalence of hearing loss and work-related noise-induced hearing loss in Michigan
||Jan. 2008, Vol.50, No.1, p.72-79. 33 ref.
||This study assessed the prevalence of self-reported hearing loss (HL) and work-related noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) in the State of Michigan, USA. Questions related to HL and NIHL were included in a telephone survey-based surveillance system of health conditions among adults. It was found that 19% reported HL, with a proportion that increased steeply with age. Among those with HL, close to 30% reported it to be related to noise at work. Associations were found between HL/NIHL and current cigarette smoking and elevated cholesterol.
