Abstract

A series of studies on the lateral difference in hearing sensitivity by gender, age, and hearing threshold level were done at the Workers' Compensation Board of British Columbia. Results confirm the right ear is statistically the `better' ear. In addition this lateral difference is shown to be a function of hearing threshold level. The different factors that could contribute or affect the lateral difference are discussed
