Data Notes

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.

Data include information about any services that infants born in the calendar year 2019 received through 2020, until time of survey reporting.

Percent Enrolled in EI before 6 Months of Age among the Enrolled: # Total Enrolled in EI before 6 Months of Age (Part C and Non Part C) / # Total Enrolled in EI (Part C and Non-Part C) *100

µ Percent Enrolled in EI before 6 Months of Age among those with Hearing Loss: # Total Enrolled in EI before 6 Months of Age (Part C and Non Part C) / # Hearing Loss *100
