Treating hearing loss can have a large impact on income

Research by the non-profit Better Hearing Institute (BHI), looking into the “impact of untreated hearing loss on household income”, resulted in many interesting findings. 

For instance, it found that the use of hearing aids in people with hearing loss “reduced the risk of income loss” by between 65 and 100 percent, depending on the severity of hearing loss; that people with untreated hearing loss had double the unemployment rate as hearing-aided peers; and it revealed these findings.
