California Surpasses New Jersey for Highest Rates, with 6.4% of the State’s Boys Holding a Diagnosis
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released its latest prevalence estimates for autism. The center reports that 1 in 44 or 2.27% of American 8-year-olds have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This rate is a 23% increase from two years ago, when the figure was 1 in 54 children. The new prevalence reflects a 3.39 fold jump in numbers since the CDC began collecting data in 2000. The study, published in the December 3, 2021 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, uses the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network to estimate the number of children with ASD and other developmental disabilities living in different areas of the United States. These reports are typically released every two years. The current report studied a total of 5058 8-year-old children with ASD in: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Tennessee, Utah, and Wisconsin. Prevalence rates ranged from 1.6% in Missouri to 3.9% in California.
