A representative study of hearing ability in North West Germany
AbstractThe estimated hearing ability of German citizens is based on a comprehensive study published by von Stackelberg in 1986. At that time, 26.8% of West-Germany citizens were rated as hearing impaired. Because of the analyzing procedure used, these data cannot be used for comparison purposes with more recent international studies carried out e.g. by Uimonen et al. (1999), Wilson et al. (1999), Quaranta et al. (1996), and Johansson and Arlinger (2003). Other German data are based on non-representative evaluations or on subjective assessments. Therefore, the Institute of Hearing Technology and Audiology started HÖRSTAT, a two-year research project designed to fill this gap.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
