    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.
