MICH-29.2 Increase the proportion of children with ASD having a first evaluation by 36 months of age
About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of non-migrant 8-year-old children with ASD having a first evaluation by 36 months of age
Number of non-migrant 8-year-old children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
The baseline (2006) and subsequent data points for this sub-objective have been revised to measure the proportion of children with ASD having a first evaluation by 36 months among non-migrant children. The term “non-migrant” is defined as children who were born in the ADDM surveillance state and resided in the respective surveillance area at the time of ascertainment (age 8 years), determined by birth certificate linkage. This population is expected to have better availability of early records due to a greater likelihood of residing in the surveillance area prior to 36 months of age. Both the numerator and denominator for this sub-objective are restricted to the non-migrant population of children with ASD. Reporting this proportion restricted to non-migrant children is consistent with the ADDM Network 2010 prevalence report.
