In this article, selected recent publications of the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) are reviewed.
In particular, data from a recent NCHS report on hearing loss were found to be consistent with a prediction made in a preview article in this series that there would be an increase in high-tone hearing loss among persons who were exposed to loud music as teenagers and young adults, beginning in the late 1960s, although the data were not specific enough to be considered proof.
In addition, the article discusses : (I) recent data on home health care, (2) new insights on how people remember and report on preventive examinations and tests, (3) a comparison of vital statistics in the United States and the Russian Federation, and (4) trends in births to unmarried women.
