Description

Respondents reported their level of difficulty hearing what is said in a conversation with one other person in a noisier room. Respondents who reported they could not hear what is said in a conversation with one other person in a quiet room were not asked this question.

In 2010, this item was collected for sample adults who completed the Quality of Life supplement (administered to approximately a quarter of sample adults). In 2011-2017, this item was collected for sample adults who completed the Adult Functioning and Disability supplement (administered to a subset of sample adults). Beginning in 2018, this item was included on the sample adult questionnaire.

Comparability
