HIA Releases Results of Hearing Loss Survey

New research announced by the Hearing Industries Association (HIA) reveals that 4 out of 5 Americans consider hearing loss serious, but ignoring the problem is more common than you may think. Fewer than 16% of adults ages 20-69 who need a hearing aid use one. That number almost doubles to 30% for adults over age 70 who need a hearing aid but don’t use one, according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD).
