Few studies have investigated the natural history or epidemiology of stuttering over the entire lifespan. The natural history of a disease involves the study of aspects of a disease that can enhance our understanding of its nature. Important aspects of the natural history of stuttering include factors such as its aetiology, its prevalence (that is, how it is distributed in society and how frequent it is at any one time), the incidence (or the risk) of ever developing the disease, the population… 
The Pathogenesis, Assessment and Treatment of Speech Fluency Disorders.
BACKGROUND Approximately 1% of children and adolescents, 0.2% of women, and 0.8% of men suffer from stuttering, and lesser numbers from cluttering. Persistent speech fluency disorders often cause
Anxiety and stuttering: continuing to explore a complex relationship.
TLDR
The aims of future research should be to improve research design, increase statistical power, employ multidimensional measures of anxiety, and further develop anxiolytic treatment options for people who stutter.

Stuttering in childhood and adolescence can prove a difficult and debilitating communication disorder, potentially adversely affecting many aspects of an individual’s life. Several researchers and

TLDR
There is a need for large-scale population based prevalence studies on communication disorders in India and this study will carry implications for current and future needs in early identification, prevention and intervention programs for these disorders.

Genetics of stuttering: a critical review.
TLDR
Generally, however, the review of incidence and twin studies, as well as of evidence for the various inheritance models, confirms previous conclusions about the interaction between genetic and environmental factors in stuttering.
Epidemiology of stuttering in the community across the entire life span.
TLDR
A randomized and stratified investigation was conducted into the epidemiology of stuttering in the community across the entire life span, finding that the prevalence over the whole population was 0.72%, with higher prevalence rates in younger children and lowest rates in adolescence.
The genetic basis of persistence and recovery in stuttering.
TLDR
It was found that recovery or persistence is indeed transmitted, and further, that recovery does not appear to be a genetically milder form of stuttering, nor do the two types of stuttered seem to be genetically independent disorders.

TLDR
A model of stuttering as a genetically determined reduction in central capacity for efficient sensory-motor integration is preferred, provided acquisition of secondary symptoms is attributed to instrumental learning.

TLDR
Mean trait anxiety levels were significantly higher than levels generally found in society, though differences were not large, and implications of these results are discussed.
