Until recently, best estimates of the prevalence for autism spectrum disorders were 5 per 10,000 for autism and 20 per 10,000 for the broader spectrum. Reports now suggest that the prevalence is considerably higher. Increased recognition, the broadening of the diagnostic concept over time and methodological differences across studies may account for most or all of the apparent increase but other explanations cannot be ruled out. Tony Charman discusses whether there is a 'real' increase and highlights some directions for future epidemiological work. (#13161)
