Errata: Vol. 58, No. SS-10

In the MMWR Surveillance Summary "Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorders---Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, United States, 2006," three errors occurred. On page 1, the first sentence of the "Results" section should read, "For the 2006 surveillance year, 2,757 (0.9%) of 308,038 children aged 8 years residing in the 11 ADDM sites were identified as having an ASD, indicating an overall average prevalence of 9.0 per 1,000 population (95% confidence interval [CI] = 8.6--9.3)." On page 2, the first sentence of the third paragraph should read, "Before the 1980s, the term "autism" was used primarily to refer to autistic disorder and was thought to be rare, affecting approximately one in every 2,000 (0.05%) children (2,3)." On page 13, the y-axis for Figure 4 should be labeled "Prevalence."
