Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is a group of incurable, developmental disabilities which affect the brain and are usually diagnosed between the ages of 18–24 months. ASD encompasses a broad spectrum of disorders in which the severity of the condition, the nature of impairment, the social and communication skills, time of onset of the condition, and the way the brain perceives information, vary among the affected individuals.

Epidemiological literature suggests an increase in the diagnosed prevalence of ASD over time. However, it remains unclear whether the increase in the diagnosed prevalence is due to a true increase in the prevalence of ASD, or due to an increase in the diagnosis of ASD because of an increased availability and utilization of health services.
In 2012, there were 1,826,542 diagnosed prevalent cases of ASD in the 6MM, with approximately 90% of the diagnosed prevalent cases (1,630,499 prevalent cases) in the US alone. GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that there will be 1,952,647 diagnosed prevalent cases of ASD in the 6MM by 2022, with an overall annual growth rate (AGR) of 0.69% during the forecast period.
Better surveillance techniques and the creation of centralized ASD registries in all countries could provide robust and reliable data for determining the true burden of the condition. Evidence generated through additional research could be further utilized to formulate policies to control for the risk factors associated with ASD, and possibly reduce the incidence of ASD in the future.
