Listen Hear! 2017
An in-depth look at hearing loss in NZ.
In 2016, NFDHH, in partnership with the wider hard of hearing and Deaf community, commissioned Deloittes Access Economics (Australia) to produce a report on the economic impact of hearing loss in New Zealand.
The study found that around 880,350 people in New Zealand now live with some type of hearing loss. It also estimates that the total cost of hearing loss in NZ is estimated at $4.9 billion.
