AW: Hearing Loss "False Positives"

Dear Kevin,

From a non-professional: 10 percent of 14.9 percent is about 1.5 percent; that leaves 13.4 percent of teenagers with hearing loss, which is still frightening. From "Molecular Biology of the Cell", Part V, Chapter 22: "Auditory Hair Cells Have to Last a Lifetime".

Would anyone in the professional community care to comment on this?
Begin forwarded message:
A new study from the University of Minnesota says that we're overestimating the amount of teens with hearing loss. 
Thanks in advance.
