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.

LFU/LTD = Loss to Follow-up / Loss to Documentation

Overall Percent LFU/LTD: (# Contacted but Unresponsive + # Unable to Contact + # Unknown) / # Total Hearing Loss * 100

Percent LFU/LTD: (# Unable to Contact + # Unknown) / # Total Hearing Loss * 100

§ Percent Unresponsive: # Contacted but Unresponsive / # Total Hearing Loss * 100

^ Jurisdiction reported using revised “Parents/Family Contacted but Unresponsive” definition. Refer to page 5-6 of the 2019 CDC EHDI Hearing Screening and Follow-up Survey Explanations document for explanations of “old” and “revised” Unresponsive definitions.
