Abstract:

Data on auditory and human developmental characteristics were serially collected over a period of about six years on groups of children and young adults in an effort to better understand how the hearing function develops in humans in relation to various individual and environmental factors. These data have been analyzed and interpreted by the investigators and the information has been presented to scientific bodies and published in technical reports references 1,2,3. The nature of this data is quite unique in that successive data on the hearing function and physical developmental characteristics have been repeatedly measured on the same individuals over the term of this study. Although the collection of information on auditory system function and noise exposure ceased in June, 1983, the physical development phase of the study continues. This report contains the raw data for the pure tone auditory thresholds and for the noise exposures measured for the individual subjects who participated in the program Appendix A. It is provided in this format in an effort to encourage continued and additional analyses of the data by individuals and groups with sufficient capability and interest.
