Title Acoustics - Statistical distribution of hearing thresholds as a function of age
Original title Acoustique - Distribution statistique des seuils d'audition en fonction de l'âge [in French]
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 2nd ed., 2000. iv, 9p. 36 ref.
Abstract This international standard provides statistics of the hearing threshold for populations of various ages. It specifies, for the range of audiometric frequencies from 125Hz to 8000Hz and for populations of otologically normal persons of a given age, within the age limits of 18 to 70 years, the expected median value of hearing thresholds given relative to the median hearing threshold at the age of 18 years and the expected statistical distribution above and below the median value.
