Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder Among Children Aged 8 Years — Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, 11 Sites, United States, 2010

The Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network is an active surveillance system in the United States that provides estimates of the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other characteristics among children aged 8 years. For 2010, the overall prevalence of ASD among the ADDM sites was 14.7 per 1,000 (one in 68) children aged 8 years. Consistent with previous reports from the ADDM Network, findings from the 2010 surveillance year were marked by significant variations in ASD prevalence by geographic area, sex, race/ethnicity, and level of intellectual ability. Comparisons between the 2010 estimate and those from previous surveillance years indicated that ASD prevalence estimates from the ADDM Network continue to increase, with a growing proportion children with ASD who have average or above average intellectual ability.

The 2013 CHDIR included updated most topics from the 2011 CHDIR and presented several new topics. This report complements the CHDIR series by presenting five CDC-sponsored interventions that have been applied to decrease health disparities in the United States.
