Timelines Of Vaccine Preventable Illnesses

AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER PREVALENCE:




The Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network was created in 2000 by the CDC in order to get more accurate Autism Spectrum Disorder prevalence statistics than were previously possible.


The national prevalence statistics are an average of the local prevalence statistics.


2000: 6 States Monitored: Arizona, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, South Carolina, West Virginia.  Average ASD prevalence across all six sites was 6.7 per 1,000 children aged 8 years.
