How Common Is Tinnitus?

Approximately 15%-18% of the world population has tinnitus.

Most people report having experienced a “normal” tinnitus; something which comes and goes on its own (typically less than a minute).

The majority of people with significant tinnitus report that it is constant but may fluctuate from day to day or is influenced by many factors, such as noise exposure, stress, fatigue, etc.

On average 10-20% of people with tinnitus seek medical help.

Reports show that 70-90% of people suffering from tinnitus show some degree of hearing loss when tested, yet nearly 60% are unaware of having any hearing problem.
