Surveillance Year 2002(8-year-olds born in 1994)
  • Sites represented approximately 10% of US 8-year-old children - 2,685 children were identified with an ASD.
  • The average prevalence across all sites was very similar to 2000 at 6.6 per 1,000.
  • There was also a range 3.3 (AL) to 10.6 (NJ) per 1,000 children

Between 1:100 and 1:300 with an average of 1:150 children with ASD.
