Survey Suggest Millions of Children Face Noise-Related Hearing Loss

July 2001

As many as 5.2 million youngsters in the United States could have Noise-Induced Hearing Threshold Shifts (NITS), according to estimates by the Centers for Disease Control.

Investigators surveyed a representative sample from 1988 to 1994 and extrapolated the results. They blamed hazardous noise levels from concerts, fireworks, lawnmowers, stereos and toys, and urged prevention efforts specifically targeted at children.
