Weighted regression analysis was applied to determine the dependence of the hearing thresholds of 47 388 noise‐exposed workers on age, sex, noise imission level, ear disease, head injury, tinnitus, hearing protector usage, and audiometric frequency in the range from 0.5 to 6 kHz. It could be shown that the hearing thresholds at any frequency are dominated by the age of the worker and that women, after equivalent exposure conditions, hear better than men. The relative effects of sex, noise imission level, ear diseases, tinnitus, and hearing protector usage are related to the audiometric frequency. Users of hearing protectors at the last audiometric investigation hear worse than nonusers. Hearing protector usage is strongly related with the hearing threshold in the low‐frequency range. The noise imission level does not noticeably affect the hearing threshold below 3 kHz. The most important frequency of the noise imission level is as expected 4 kHz. For 4 kHz, it was shown that the variables age, noise imission level, tinnitus, head injuries, and ear diseases act in a good approximation additively on the pure‐tone hearing threshold.
