How Many Deaf People Are There in the United States? Estimates From the Survey of Income and Program Participation
Ross E. Mitchell
Gallaudet Research Institute, Gallaudet University

The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is one of a few national surveys that regularly collects data identifying the American population of persons with hearing loss or deafness. Estimates from the SIPP indicate that fewer than 1 in 20 Americans are currently deaf or hard of hearing. In round numbers, nearly 10,000,000 persons are hard of hearing and close to 1,000,000 are functionally deaf. More than half of all persons with hearing loss or deafness are 65 years or older and less than 4% are under 18 years of age. However, these findings are limited to those who report difficulty hearing "normal conversation" and do not include the larger population of persons with hearing loss for which only hearing outside the range and circumstances of normal conversation is affected. Policy makers, communications technology manufacturers, health and education service providers, researchers, and advocacy organizations have an interest in these results.

Correspondence should be sent to Ross E. Mitchell, Gallaudet Research Institute, Gallaudet University, 800 Florida Avenue, NE, Washington, DC 20002 (e-mail: ross.mitchell@gallaudet.edu).

The difficulty is in defining deafness and when people try, the numbers go crazy.

Number of deaf people

According to the website, Being Heard Online .com, there are 258 million deaf people worldwide. If we put all the deaf people in 1 country, we would be the 4th largest country. In the USA, there are about 28 million deaf people. This include those who are deaf, hard of hearing, late deaf adults, and those who have CI. Hope this info helps.
