OBJECTIVES The developmental disabilities questions in the 2014 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) were changed from previous years, including question reordering and a new approach to asking about autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This report examines survey-based estimates of the lifetime prevalence of ASD, intellectual disability (ID), and any other developmental delay (other DD) following the inclusion of a standalone ASD question, the inclusion of specific diagnoses in the ASD question… 
Estimated Prevalence of Children With Diagnosed Developmental Disabilities in the United States, 2014-2016.
TLDR
The latest prevalence estimates for diagnosed autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, and other developmental delay among children aged 3–17 years from the 2014–2016 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) are provided.
Prevalence and Treatment Patterns of Autism Spectrum Disorder in the United States, 2016
TLDR
The prevalence of ASD in the United States was relatively high, and it varied substantially across US states, which calls for a critical need to understand and address the barriers for those children to receive appropriate treatments.
Prevalence and Trends of Developmental Disabilities among Children in the United States: 2009–2017
TLDR
The prevalence of developmental disability among US children aged 3 to 17 years increased between 2009 and 2017, and changes by demographic and socioeconomic subgroups may be related to improvements in awareness and access to health care.
Utilization of genetic testing among children with developmental disabilities in the United States
TLDR
The majority of children in this nationally representative sample did not undergo recommended genetic testing, and prior specialist care and access to all needed providers within the previous year were associated with higher odds of genetic testing.
The Prevalence of Parent-Reported Autism Spectrum Disorder Among US Children
TLDR
The estimated prevalence of US children with a parent-reported autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis is now 1 in 40, with rates of ASD-specific treatment usage varying by children’s sociodemographic and co-occurring conditions.
[Prevalence estimation of Autism Spectrum disorders in chilean urban population].
TLDR
This study is the first estimate of ASD prevalence in two communes of Santiago, Chile, and highlights the need for obtaining resources for an early multidisciplinary approach for these patients.
Healthcare Costs of Pediatric Autism Spectrum Disorder in the United States, 2003-2015.
TLDR
In this study, ASD case status was determined using two sources of parent reports among 45,944 children ages 3-17 years in the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) linked to the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Sample Child Core questionnaire to represent substantial costs to the US healthcare system.
Developmental stages and estimated prevalence of coexisting mental health and neurodevelopmental conditions and service use in youth with intellectual disabilities, 2011-2012.
TLDR
Youth with ID are at greater risk of having coexisting mental health and neurodevelopmental conditions than youth without ID and are more likely to receive treatment and should be considered when tailoring interventions for youth with ID.
Autism spectrum disorder: updated prevalence and comparison of two birth cohorts in a nationally representative Australian sample
TLDR
The higher prevalence of parent-reported and teacher-reported ASD diagnosis in the later-born cohort may be partially explained by identifying children with milder behavioural problems as ASD and a change in the use of diagnostic categories in schools.
Gender variance in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder from the National Database for Autism Research
ABSTRACT Previous studies suggest elevated rates of gender variance (GV), the wish to be of the other gender, in those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study aimed to understand the rate of

Prevalence of Parent-Reported Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder Among Children in the US, 2007
TLDR
The observed point-prevalence of autism spectrum disorder in the US is higher than previous US estimates, and more inclusive survey questions, increased population awareness, and improved screening and identification by providers may partly explain this finding.
Health care use and health and functional impact of developmental disabilities among US children, 1997-2005.
OBJECTIVE To present nationally representative estimates of health-related limitations, needs, and service use among US children with and without developmental disabilities (DDs). DESIGN
Mental health in the United States: parental report of diagnosed autism in children aged 4-17 years--United States, 2003-2004.
TLDR
Estimates suggest that, as of 2003-2004, autism had been diagnosed in at least 300,000 U.S. children aged 4-17 years and were associated with reported social, emotional, and behavioral symptoms and specialized needs.
Trends in the Prevalence of Developmental Disabilities in US Children, 1997–2008
TLDR
Autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and other developmental delays increased, whereas hearing loss showed a significant decline, and trends were found in all of the sociodemographic subgroups, except for autism in non-Hispanic black children.
Potential impact of DSM-5 criteria on autism spectrum disorder prevalence estimates.
TLDR
Autism spectrum disorder prevalence estimates will likely be lower under DSM-5 than under DSM -IV-TR diagnostic criteria, although this effect could be tempered by future adaptation of diagnostic practices and documentation of behaviors to fit the new criteria.
Prevalence of autism in a United States population: the Brick Township, New Jersey, investigation.
TLDR
The prevalence of autism in Brick Township seems to be higher than that in other studies, particularly studies conducted in the United States, but within the range of a few recent studies in smaller populations that used more thorough case-finding methods.
Comorbidity of intellectual disability confounds ascertainment of autism: implications for genetic diagnosis
  • A. Polyak, R. Kubina, S. Girirajan
  • Medicine
    American journal of medical genetics. Part B, Neuropsychiatric genetics : the official publication of the International Society of Psychiatric Genetics
  • 2015
TLDR
The results suggest that current ascertainment practices are based on a single facet of autism‐specific clinical features and do not consider associated comorbidities that may confound diagnosis, and longitudinal studies with detailed phenotyping and deep molecular genetic analyses are necessary to completely understand the cause of this complex disorder.
Parent-Reported Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorders in US-Born Children: An Assessment of Changes within Birth Cohorts from the 2003 to the 2007 National Survey of Children’s Health
TLDR
The prevalence of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) from the 2007 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) was twice the 2003 NSCH estimate for autism, and the magnitude of most birth cohort-specific differences suggests continuing diagnosis of children in the community played a sizable role in the 2003–2007 ASD prevalence increase.
Changes in prevalence of parent-reported autism spectrum disorder in school-aged U.S. children: 2007 to 2011-2012.
TLDR
The results of the cohort analyses increase confidence that differential survey measurement error over time was not a major contributor to observed changes in the prevalence of parent-reported ASD.
Diagnosis lost: Differences between children who had and who currently have an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis
TLDR
Currently diagnosed and previously diagnosed children were less likely to have parents with early concerns about verbal skills, nonverbal communication, learning, and unusual gestures or movements and to have ever received a diagnosis of Asperger’s disorder or autistic disorder.
