Figures on the numbers of people on local authority registers of the deaf and hard of hearing were published today by the department of health.

The publication gives information on the numbers on the registers at 31 March 1995. The key points of the analysis are:

- the number of people registered as deaf at 31 March 1995 was 45,500, an increase of 9% from 31 March 1992

- the number of people registered as hard of hearing was 125,900, up 32% on March 1992. This increase is likely to be due to greater publicity and awareness

- 57% of people registered as deaf are aged 18 to 64, whereas 61% of people registered as hard of hearing are aged 75 or over

Registration is voluntary.
