Prevalence of autism in U.S. children aged 8 years in selected states 2014 This statistic displays the estimated prevalence of autism spectrum disorder among children aged 8 years in select U.S. states in 2014. The prevalence rate of autism spectrum disorder was 17 per 1,000 children in Georgia. Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disability characterized by deficits in social communication and interaction as well as repetitive behavior, interest, or activity patterns.
Autism spectrum disorder in children

New Jersey has one of the highest prevalence rates of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) among children aged 8 years. In 2014, New Jersey’s prevalence rate reached 29.3 cases per 1,000 children while the rate was about 14 cases per 1,000 children in Wisconsin. ASD is more common among male than female children, with an estimated 45.5 male cases per 1,000 children and 12.3 female cases per 1,000 children in New Jersey the same year.

Limitations in a child with autism can vary between individuals and develop over time. The median age of diagnosis among children with an autistic disorder in New Jersey was 42 months of age, in comparison to 66 months for Asperger disorder.

Prevalence of ASD has increased significantly since the late 1960s by about 20 to 30 times. Many studies suggest that this is due to improved awareness and recognition as well as diagnostic capabilities. For those living with autism, lifetime costs may total up to 2.68 million U.S. dollars. Autism is likely caused by a combination of genetics and environmental factors, where people with ASD may have abnormal levels of brain serotonin which could disrupt early brain development.
