Thank you to Henrik for his careful filtering of the raw data, and to Jason Lewis for his programming assistance on this one.

We’ve added just over 600 high quality data points to the World Hum Map. I’ve enlisted the help of a SFU Psychology student in generating the new statistics for Hum Hearers, and one early result is that we know the mean and median ages of Hearers are 43 and 45 respectively. I’ll release the full set of statistics when they are ready.

    600 data points? Hot spots of the hum? Without a doubt we hear the sound of emg. I have dozens of times cleared it from my head. As your one writer said its frequency has increased to a broader range. The person recording it. I thought it might be a single source. Please release the info on the 600 data points when you can.

    Sorry. I’m only on my phone so can’t download the data. In a nutshell what does 600 data points mean? I checked your map but it has me confused.

    • There are now over 3600 closely vetted points/locations on the World Hum Map. Henrik used a very strict set of criteria and distilled an original set of over 14,000 points down to our current data set. It serves as a resource for professional and amateur researchers who want to conduct research on the World Hum.

    Not sure if this means anything or not. I was recently diagnosed with 2 auto immune diseases. All hell broke loose June 1st. Doctor put me on 50 mg of prednisone. While I was on the high dosage I did not hear or feel The Hum. Now that I am tapering off the prednisone off I do (now at 9 mg per day and should be off totally in 4 months time). The diseases generally affect older people in early 70’s. I am 66 and considered on the young side. Prednisone and Methotrexate are anti inflammatories. Since The Hum and Polymalygia and Giant Cell Arteritis affect mostly older people do you think that inflammation could be the reason people hear The Hum? Just a thought.
