New Jersey Autism Prevalence Rate Rises to 1 in 34

State Prevalence Rate Up 19%; National Rate Up to 1 in 59

The latest study released recently by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows the rate of children identified with an autism spectrum disorder has risen to 1 in 59 children nationally and 1 in 34 children in New Jersey.  “An urgent public health concern,” according to the CDC, the ASD rate has tripled since 2000.  New Jersey's numbers continue to exceed and outpace other states, likely due to better awareness and diagnosis, as well as the elimination of racial disparities in evaluations still present elsewhere and more girls being identified.
