In addition to the pure-tone audiograms, the DALC repository provided the ages of the participants, except for those 90 yr and older.
Finally, the DALC database provided no indications of the types, amounts, and durations of noise exposure experienced by each participant, which precluded any examination of the possible relations between noise exposure and the pure-tone audiogram.
