This report is based on the audiogram database maintained at the Department of Veterans Affairs Denver Acquisition and Logistics Center. We evaluated audiograms from more than 1 million veterans, focusing on the dip in the audiogram (poorer hearing) that occurs in the high pitch range where hearing loss is often thought to first occur. The important findings were that more individuals had poorer hearing in one ear than in both ears. Slightly more people had these dips in the left ear than in the right ear.
