In the present study, we aimed to determine the prevalence of hearing loss in the South Korean population and to understand the correlation between aging, sex, and hearing loss prevalence through the analysis of data collected from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES). 
Prevalence and clinical aspects of hearing loss among the South Korean adolescent: Data from a population-based study.
TLDR
According to this population-based retrospective study, the prevalence of slight/mild hearing loss and onlyHFHL in the South Korean adolescents were considerably high, and factors found to be associated with only HFHL were sex (female) and household income (high).
The Prevalence of Hearing Impairment by Age and Gender in a Population-based Study
TLDR
The considerable prevalence of HI in Iran in comparison with other developing countries, with regards to the trend of aging in the population, seems concerning and could be used as a treatment and research guideline for future works in the area of policymaking and plan to decrease these disorders.
Mental Health of the People with Hearing Impairment in Korea: A Population-Based Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
Elderly individuals with hearing impairment are easily susceptible to poor mental health status and early targeted intervention to address mental health problems is recommended for people with Hearing impairment.
Effect of Cigarette Smoking and Passive Smoking on Hearing Impairment: Data from a Population–Based Study
TLDR
It was found that the current smoking group had significantly increased hearing thresholds compared to the passive smoking group and non-smoking groups, across all ages in both speech-relevant and high frequencies.
Age- and Gender-Related Mean Hearing Threshold in a Highly-Screened Population: The Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2010–2012
TLDR
The mean hearing thresholds suggested in this study will be useful for the formulation of healthcare-related hearing policies and used as reference data for disability ratings for hearing loss due to various causes.
Impact of hearing loss on the performance of auditory processing measured by questionnaires in Korean adolescents
TLDR
It is suggested that hearing loss, especially bilateral high-frequency Hearing loss, may affect central auditory processing and positive correlations among the APD questionnaire results and mean hearing levels are observed.
Hearing loss in Korean adolescents: The prevalence thereof and its association with leisure noise exposure
TLDR
It is important to avoid excessive LNE to prevent adolescent HL, and the use of local area network (LAN) gaming centers and an experience of being asked by others to lower earphone volume were associated with both SFHL and HFHL.
Prevalence of severe-profound hearing loss in South Korea: a nationwide population-based study to analyse a 10-year trend (2006–2015)
TLDR
Number of severe-profound HL in South Korea decreased gradually in all age groups annually, even though some older age groups had the highest peak in 2010–2011, although the absolute number of HL cases increases rapidly among those aged over 80 years.
Self-reported hearing loss in Russians: the population-based Ural Eye and Medical Study
TLDR
The prevalence of hearing loss is high in this elderly population in Russia and is primarily or secondarily associated with older age, depression, male gender, cardiovascular disease and alcohol consumption.
Open-angle Glaucoma and Sensorineural Hearing Impairment in the Korean Population
TLDR
Sensorineural hearing loss and POAG are relevant if hearing impairment and visual impairment occur together, the quality of life of the patient is worsened and the social burden is greater, therefore, care should be taken when treating elderly patients with glaucoma.

Prevalence of age-related hearing loss in older adults: Blue Mountains Study.
TLDR
The prevalence of hearing loss among US adults aged 20 to 69 years, based on data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES, 1999-2004), was observed and associations between demographic characteristics, noise exposure, cardiovascular risk factors, and hearing loss were assessed.
Prevalence of Otolaryngologic Diseases in South Korea: Data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2008
TLDR
This is the first nation-wide epidemiologic study to assess the prevalence of otolaryngologic diseases by both the Korean Otolarygologic Society and the Ministry of Health and Welfare, and the results call for additional studies to better prevent and manage otolarian diseases.
The epidemiology of hearing impairment in an Australian adult population.
TLDR
The present study showed that there are a large number of Australians who may benefit from a more systematic community-based rehabilitation programme including the fitting of hearing aids, which is similar to that found in Great Britain.
Epidemiology of hearing problems among adults in Italy.
TLDR
The study was conducted in Bari, Florence, Milan, Padua, Palermo with questionnaire and audiological assessment; neither stage showed any gross bias arising from the particular cities chosen.
Prevalence of hearing loss in older adults in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. The Epidemiology of Hearing Loss Study.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hearing loss is a very common problem affecting older adults and Epidemiologic studies are needed to understand the genetic, environmental, and sex-related determinants of age-related hearing loss and to identify potential intervention strategies.
Cigarette smoking and hearing loss: the epidemiology of hearing loss study.
TLDR
The data suggest that environmental exposures may play a role in age-related hearing loss and modification of smoking habits may prevent or delay age- related declines in hearing sensitivity.
Prevalence of hearing loss and differences by demographic characteristics among US adults: data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1999-2004.
TLDR
Hearing loss is more prevalent among US adults than previously reported, and increases in hearing loss prevalence occurred earlier among participants with smoking, noise exposure, and cardiovascular risks.
Gender affects audiometric shape in presbyacusis.
A review of large-scale surveys of hearing over the past 50 years reveals a "gender-reversal" phenomenon in the average audiograms of the elderly. Above 1 kHz males show greater average loss than
The effect of hormonal factors on the hearing organ in women, after surgical castration. Preliminary report.
TLDR
Analysis of the effect of hormones on the hearing organ in women who underwent surgical castration takes into consideration the correlation with the results of laboratory tests and the results obtained in the control group.
A randomised controlled trial of screening for adult hearing loss during preventive health checks.
TLDR
Preventive health checks with audiometry did not significantly affect hearing, but leisure noise exposure tended to become less frequent and there was a tendency towards reduction in exposure to leisure noise among intervention participants.
