  • a Because of small sample sizes, data for non-Hispanic American Indian/Alaska Native and non-Hispanic Asian/Pacific Islander are not shown. NR, not reported due to small sample sizes.

  • b ASD surveillance for children born in 1985 and 1986 was not conducted.

  • c Overall prevalence estimates (1985-2002) and trend analyses for surveillance years with n < 5 children include all years' data and reflect weighted prevalence with the subsequent surveillance year(s).
