Hearing Loss

Introducing a new way to view data   |   SHINY from R Studio

Introducing a new way of looking at the prevalence of hearing loss. Rates of hearing loss as measured with gold-standard audiometric hearing tests vary substantially by age and gender. Importantly, projections of the number of people with hearing loss will also change dramatically over time with the rising number of older adults living longer than ever before. Explore how the number of people with hearing loss is expected to change over time using a web app that Center Core Faculty Josh Betz has developed using Shiny.
