Did you know that research by the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) resulted in the discovery that hearing loss has been shown to negatively impact household income on-average up to $12,000 per year depending on the degree of hearing loss?
Looking into the "impact of untreated hearing loss on household income" found that the use of hearing aids in people with hearing loss "reduced the risk of income loss" between 65 and 100 percent! Additionally, the study found that people with untreated hearing loss had double the unemployment rate as their peers who had hearing aids for their loss.
According to Starkey, the report linked the income disparity to several factors, including hurdles with effective communication, underemployment, and physical and mental health issues that may affect job performance.
