An estimated 1 in 68 children has an autism spectrum disorder, the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention said today, a 30% increase over its 2012
estimate of 1 in 88 children.

The rate works out to 14.7 children per 1,000 8-year-olds, the CDC said.
The data shows that autism spectrum disorders are nearly five times more
common in boys than girls, and more common in white children compared to
African-American or Hispanic children.

The number of children identified as having an autism spectrum disorder
ranged from 1 in 175 children in Alabama to 1 in 45 children in New Jersey.

Researchers reviewed records from community organizations that educate,
diagnose, treat or provide services to children with developmental
disabilities to arrive at the new estimate.
