Objective: To estimate the current incidence and prevalence in the United States of 12 neurologic disorders. Methods: We summarize the strongest evidence available, using data from the United States or from other developed countries when US data were insufficient. Results: For some disorders, prevalence is a better descriptor of impact; for others, incidence is preferable. Per 1,000 children, estimated prevalence was 5.8 for autism spectrum disorder and 2.4 for cerebral palsy; for Tourette… Expand

How Common is Essential Tremor? Update on the Worldwide Prevalence of Essential Tremor
TLDR
The prevalence of ET among those age ≥ 65 is similar to that reported for Alzheimer’s disease in elders, suggesting that ET may be the most common neurodegenerative disease. Expand
AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS SURVEILLANCE IN
TLDR
The reported demographic characteristics of ALS cases were consistent with previously published findings, and the crude annual incidence was slightly lower than the expected rate but was within the range reported previously. Expand

TLDR
Results are reported from the first study to evaluate the relationship between number of children and age at diagnosis (not age at onset) in men and women, and it is concluded that the correlation between numberof children andAge at diagnosis is unlikely to be a biological one because the correlation is stronger in men than in women.

Accounting for comorbidity in assessing the burden of epilepsy among US adults: Results from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R)
TLDR
The net association of epilepsy with days of role impairment after controlling for comorbidities is equivalent to an annualized 89.4 million excess role impairment days among US adults with epilepsy, arguing that role impairment is a major component of the societal costs of epilepsy per se rather than merely due to disorders comor bid with epilepsy.

CDC-supported epilepsy surveillance and epidemiologic studies: A review of progress since 1994
To report progress, to identify gaps, and to plan epilepsy surveillance and research activities more effectively, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Epilepsy Program has summarizedExpand
Geriatric Psychiatric and Cognitive Disorders: Depression, Dementia, and Delirium
TLDR
The most important and efficient method to treat the 3Ds is to eliminate the cause and manage the comorbidities, which is a risk factor of the3Ds. Expand
Is Alzheimer disease related to age-related macular degeneration?
TLDR
This study demonstrated the importance of cognitive assessment in patients with AMD, particularly in the d-AMD type, which performed worse than controls on all tests. Expand
Falls requiring medical attention among veterans with multiple sclerosis: a cohort study.
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to estimate the relative risk of an injurious fall requiring medical attention in veterans with multiple sclerosis compared with veterans without MS after controlling for sex, age, and healthcare use, and to recommend further studies evaluating the medical, social, and economic consequences of injurious falls. Expand
GENETICS OF PARKINSON DISEASE
TLDR
The investigation of the exact function of the genes and proteins involved in genetic PD is investigated to better understand the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms of the much more common idiopathic form of the disorder. Expand
Current Referral Practices for Diagnosis and Intervention for Children with Cerebral Palsy: A National Environmental Scan.
TLDR
Wide variability exists in the age at which young children with CP are referred to specialists for diagnosis and intervention, and user-friendly tools are needed to enhance early detection and referral strategies by primary care practitioners to ensure early interventions to optimize developmental outcomes and enhance opportunities for neural repair at a younger age.

The current neurologic burden of illness and injury in the United States
TLDR
Estimates of the need for neurologists must be based ultimately on the frequency of neurologic disease, which means more than 1 person in every 100 who each year will have a new neurologic disorder that requires the attention of a physician competent in clinical neurology. Expand
Motor neurone disease--a study of prevalence and disability.
TLDR
A quantitative indication of the dependency in a population of patients with motor neurone disease is given, with a point prevalence of 2.73/100,000 given in the counties of South Glamorgan, Mid Gwent and Gwent. Expand

TLDR
It appears likely that the current true prevalence of ASD is considerably greater than previously recognised, which has significant implications for the scientific understanding of ASD and for families and services. Expand
Prevalence of cerebral palsy in Alberta.
TLDR
Cerebral palsy continues to affect a significant number of children suggesting the prevalence of cerebral palsy has not decreased, and the proportion of affected children with low birthweight in this study is less than that reported in the literature. Expand

  • 2002
TLDR
The evidence suggests that the majority, if not all, of the reported rise in incidence and prevalence of autism in pre-school children is due to changes in diagnostic criteria and increasing awareness and recognition of autistic spectrum disorders. Expand
Prevalence of autism in a US metropolitan area.
TLDR
The rate of autism found in this study was higher than the rates from studies conducted in the United States during the 1980s and early 1990s, but it was consistent with those of more recent studies. Expand
Prevalence of clinically diagnosed Alzheimer's disease and other dementing disorders
TLDR
Comparison with other populations suggests that dementia of all types is as frequent in Appignano as elsewhere, and that Alzheimer's disease might be more frequent in rural than in urban populations. Expand
Incidence of Epilepsy and Unprovoked Seizures in Rochester, Minnesota: 1935–1984
TLDR
Age‐and gender‐specific incidence trends were similar to those of epilepsy, but a higher proportion of cases was of unknown etiology and was characterized by generalized onset seizures. Expand
Incidence and distribution of parkinsonism in Olmsted County, Minnesota, 1976–1990
TLDR
Parkinsonism is a common disease among the elderly; its incidence increases steeply with advancing age and is consistently higher in men, while the distribution by type changes with age and gender. Expand
