2010 National EHDI Data Now Available

The CDC EHDI Program is pleased to announce that the 2010 national EHDI data is now available online at: www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/hearingloss/ehdi-data.html. Here you will find detailed data from nearly every state and territory that shows several exciting trends, including a reduction in loss to follow-up (LFU) / loss to documentation (LTD) for infants needing a diagnosis (see below for highlights).

The information available online includes an overview of the 2010 data and separate summaries showing the screening, diagnostic, and intervention data reported by each state and territory. Comparisons between the 2010 and previous year’s data and a copy of the 2010 survey are also available.
