Action on Hearing Loss estimates that there are more than 10 million (about 1 in 6) people in the UK with some degree of hearing impairment or deafness.. Hearing loss can occur suddenly, but usually develops gradually. People with mild hearing loss notice only subtle differences and may have trouble hearing certain high-frequency sounds, such as ‘s’, ‘f’ or ‘th’. They may also have trouble hearing in certain situations, such as at a party or in a crowd where there is a lot of background noise.

Based on a CDC study involving hearing tests and interviews with participants, at least 10 million adults (6 percent) in the U.S. under age 70—and perhaps as many as 40 million adults (24 percent)—have features of their hearing test that suggest hearing. Noise is a significant source of hearing loss, but you can protect your hearing.
