Description

BACKGROUND: We aimed to investigate predictors of change in pure-tone hearing thresholds in older adults. METHODS: Data were drawn from a pooled sample from the Dynamic Analyses to Optimise Ageing (DYNOPTA) project (N = 4,221, mean age = 73.6, range: 50-103 years). Pure-tone hearing thresholds were tested for frequencies between 0.5 and 8 kHz, on up to four occasions over a period of 11 years. Linear mixed models tested for predictors of change in hearing. RESULTS. Hearing loss for high-range...[Show more]
