Notes

* Each jurisdiction’s submitted data underwent a cleaning and error check process. Jurisdictions reporting ≥20% of total screened infants in the “unknown” category, for each demographic variable, were excluded from this analysis.

Percentage of infants screened for each category is calculated among the total occurrent births (i.e. % Males Screened = (( # Total Pass Screening:Male + Total Not Pass Screening:Male) / # Total Occurrent Births:Male ) * 100).

^ Percentage of infants receiving diagnostic testing for each category is calculated among the total number of infants not passing hearing screening (i.e. % Males Receiving Diagnostic Testing After Not Passing Hearing Screening = (( # Total with No Hearing Loss:Male + Total with Permanent Hearing Loss:Male) / # Total Not Pass Screening:Male ) * 100).

α Percentage of infants enrolled in Part C EI services for each category is calculated among the total number of infants with hearing loss (i.e. % Males Enrolled in Part C EI After Diagnosed with Hearing Loss = ( # Total Enrolled in Part C EI: Male / # Total with Hearing Loss:Male ) * 100).
