  • Estimated prevalence of noise-induced hearing threshold shifts among children 6-19 years of age: The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-94 -- United States. Niskar AS, Kieszak SM, Holmes A, Esteban E, Rubin C, Brody DJ. Pediatrics 2001;108:40-3.

    This analysis estimates the first nationally representative prevalence of noise-induced hearing threshold shifts among U.S. children. The results of this analysis suggest that children are being exposed to excessive amounts of hazardous levels of noise, and children's hearing is vulnerable to these exposures.
  • Reply to letter to the editor: noise-induced hearing loss. Niskar AS, Kieszak SM, Holmes A, Esteban E, Rubin C, Brody DJ. Pediatrics 2002;109:987-8.
  • Prevalence of hearing loss among children 6-19 years of age: The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Niskar AS, Kieszak SM, Holmes A, Esteban E, Rubin C, Brody DJ. JAMA 1998;279(14):1071-5.

    This analysis describes the prevalence of hearing loss among U.S. children by sociodemographic characteristics, reported hearing loss, and audiometric screening factors. The results of this analysis indicate that 14.9% of U.S. children have low-frequency or high-frequency hearing loss of at least 16-dB hearing level in one or both ears.
