Dr. Eric Fombonne says,
"prevalence of autism is 68 per 10,000 or 1-147. "
the recent IMFAR (International Meeting For Autism Research) Conference, noted
autism epidemiologist Dr. Eric Fombonne stated in his presentation that based
on 50 previously published epi studies of autism, the prevalence rate of autism
had been established, by his work and others, at between 2 to 10 per
10,000...which is to say as low as 1-5000 or as high as 1-1000 (Fombonne's own
past studies reported the lower end of the prevalence spectrum). In a
monumental statement at IMFAR, Fombonne now claims, as a result of his most
recent work, that the prevalence of autism is 68 per 10,000 or 1-147.
Fombonne's latest work shows that the prevalence of autism has
increased between 600% and 3400% (1-1000 down to 1-147 = 600% increase) and
(1-5000 down to 1-147 = 3400% increase). Using the middle ground of 5 per
10,000 or otherwise stated as 1-2000, the most recent epi study by this most
conservative autism epidemiologist would now suggest a 1300% increase in the
prevalence of autism over a 25 year period, or on average, a doubling of the
prevalence of autism every two years between 1976 and 2001 ************************************
