Figure 2: (a and b) Mean annual threshold change in dB/year, in the better ear, from 70 years to 75 years of age, by gender and noise exposure groups: No reported noise (No N) or >10 years of reported occupational noise exposure (N) Adapted data for subjects of the same age for reference, from Lee et al. (2005) with negative or positive noise history, and from Pearson et al. (1995), are supplied. Mean values, rather than medians, are shown for illustrative purposes
