Trends in Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnoses in Japan, 2009 to 2019

This cohort study examines the geographical variations in the incidence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and calculates the nationwide cumulative incidence of ASD in Japan.

Cumulative Incidence of Autism Into Adulthood for Birth Cohorts in Denmark, 1980-2012

This Research Letter examines cumulative incidence on autism spectrum disorder in Denmark using nationwide registered diagnosis data from 1980 to 2012 and assesses whether prevalence was stabilized.

Epidemiology of Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Review of Worldwide Prevalence Estimates Since 2014

Data confirm a high variability in prevalence across the world, likely due to methodological differences in case detection, and the consistent increase of prevalence estimates within each geographical area.

The Changing Epidemiology of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Eviologic investigations focused on nongenetic factors have established advanced parental age and preterm birth as ASD risk factors, indicated that prenatal exposure to air pollution and short interpregnancy interval are potentialrisk factors, and suggested the need for further exploration of certain prenatal nutrients, metabolic conditions, and exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

Incidence time trends and socioeconomic factors in the observed incidence of autism spectrum disorder in israel: A nationwide nested case–control study

Examination of incidence time trends of ASD in Israel according to socioeconomic factors showed strong positive associations between household income and ASD incidence, as expected, and after factoring in population group, the elevated ASD incidence rates in the highest income bracket decreased.

Epidemiological surveys of ASD: advances and remaining challenges.

Directions for the future of autism epidemiology are discussed, including the need to systematically examine cross-cultural variation in phenotypic expression and developing surveillance programs.

Prevalence and Incidence of Developmental Disorders in Korea: A Nationwide Population-Based Study

The ratio of autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay and language disorders among the total incident cases of DDs increased by 13.7%, 817.6%, and 30.7% between 2003 and 2017, indicating their contribution to the trend of increasing prevalence.

Temporal trends in annual incidence rates for psychiatric disorders and self-harm among children and adolescents in the UK, 2003–2018

The number of young people seeking help for psychological distress appears to have increased in recent years, particularly among girls diagnosed with ADHD or ASD, and changes to diagnostic criteria, reduced stigma, and increased awareness may partly explain the results.
