Table 1: Distributions of significant exposures − both related to shooting noise and to other factors suspected of being related to hearing loss − among hunters with and without high-frequency hearing impairment (HFHI), along with prevalence ratios (PR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) as measures of age-adjusted associations between the exposures and HFHI. The analysis is stratified according to the main exposure, namely having fired at least one shot in the preceding 5 years with a hunting rifle caliber weapon without ear protection (n = 202)
