McLaren, Jennifer; Bryson, Susan E.
American Journal of Mental Retardation, v92 n3 p243-54 Nov 1987
Recent epidemiological studies of mental retardation were critically reviewed, and data on prevalence, associated disorders, and etiology examined. Results indicated that there was a prevalence for both severe and mild retardation of 3 to 4 per 1000, that a wide range of disorders were associated with mental retardation, and that etiology is often unknown.
