Fombonne, Eric
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v33 n4 p365-82 Aug 2003
This article reviews 32 epidemiological studies of pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) published between 1966-2001. The design and sample characteristics of the surveys are described. Surveys have suggested that the rate for all forms of PDDs are around 30/10,000, but more recent surveys suggest it might be as high as 60/10,000. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
