Black and Hispanic children in the US have a higher rate of autism than whites for the first time

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention examined the health and school records of 8-year-olds in 11 states who were deemed important in diagnosing autism.

According to the aforementioned records, it was determined that one out of every 36 8-year-old children in the country in 2020 has autism.

The incidence of autism in 8-year-old black and Hispanic children in the country has increased in recent years.

3 percent of children from black, Hispanic, Asian, or Pacific Islander countries came out with autism, compared to 2 percent of white children.

One out of every 100 children in the world has autism

Autism was previously seen higher in middle- and low-income white children than in others in the country.

Health officials cite the improvement in screening and autism services for all children as the reason for the change in rates.

In 2010, the incidence of autism in white children was 30 percent higher than black children and 50 percent higher than Hispanics.

In the country, one in every 44 8-year-old children was diagnosed with autism in 2018.

According to the data of the World Health Organization (WHO), one out of every 100 children in the world has autism.
