Summary 

IHME research, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, studied interviews and hearing loss tests from four nationally representative surveys that were conducted between 1976 and 2006 on men and women aged 20-69. The research team developed a methodology for standardizing the surveys and used all available data to find the true trend in hearing loss reduction.
