Hearing Loss set to increase by more than 50%...

the Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland (US) have projected that among US adults aged 20 years and older, the number of people with hearing loss is expected to increase from 44 million in 2020 to 73.5 million by 2060.


The 2020 rate would correspond to 15% of adults, while the 2060 rate would be equivalent to about 23% of the adult population. The projected increase is highest for older adults: in 2020, 55.4% of all adults with hearing loss will be 70 years of age or older. In 2060, the rate will jump to 67.4%, according to the findings.
