Re: threshold/masking data

does anybody out there have any pure-tone threshold and simultaneous
masking data for normal hearing listeners aged from 13 to 40 or
thereabouts.  We're interested in how closely these two scores correlate if
at all.
We showed positive correlations at 0.5 and 2.0 kHz but not at 4.0 kHz.

deterioration of hearing with age:  Frequency selectivity, the critical
ratio, the audiogram, and speech threshold.  J. Acoust. Soc. Am., 72,

There is a table of correlations on page 1794.
