Data Notes

This summary reflects final, most hearing screening results.

In many regions the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the delivery of health care services in 2020, including newborn hearing screening and follow-up services. As a result, infants born in late 2019 and needing hearing screening and/or follow-up services in 2020 may have had difficulties obtaining these services.

^ Jurisdiction reported using revised “Parents/Family Contacted but Unresponsive” definition. Refer to page 6-7 of the 2019 CDC EHDI Hearing Screening and Follow-up Survey Explanations document for explanations of “old” and “revised” Unresponsive definitions.
