  • 1 in 36 children in the U.S. have autism, up from the previous rate of 1 in 44.

  • 1 in 45 adults in the U.S. have autism

  • In the U.S., about 4 in 100 boys and 1 in 100 girls have autism.

  • Boys are nearly 4 times more likely to be diagnosed with autism than girls.

  • Autism prevalence is lower among white children than other racial and ethnic groups:

    • White – 2.4%

    • Black – 2.9%

    • Hispanic – 3.2%

    • Asian or Pacific Islander – 3.3%

These changes reflect an improvement in outreach, screening and de-stigmatization of autism diagnosis among minority communities.
