Abstract

Autism is often in the news. This past week the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the USA announced new estimates for prevalence: 1 child in every 88 has an autism spectrum disorder. This is a jump from their previous figures for the US, but actually almost identical to what Gillian Baird and colleagues found in South East England a few years ago in their 2006 Lancet article.
