Hearing Loss: How Common is it?

Posted on February 10, 2011. Filed under: 1, hearing health | Tags: , , , , |

Suffering from hearing loss can be devastating. Not being able to communicate with others not only affects your everyday interaction with individuals, but also affects employment and education, among other things.

According to the American Speech-Language- Hearing Association (ASHA), the number of Americans who now suffer from loss of hearing has doubled during the past three decades. Data collected from a variety of federal surveys showed alarming results. The figures, obtained from an article written by ASHA, are as follows: hearing loss for individuals aged three years or older: 13.2 million (1971), 14.2 million (1977), 20.3 million (1991), and 24.2 million (1993).

If you or anyone you know suffers from hearing health problems, do not hesitate to visit your local Miami hearing center, and make an appointment with Dr. Joseph Duran, an audiologist, who will give you information on how to treat the condition, as well as improve your quality of life with the correct usage of hearing aids.
