Autism Prevalence Higher, Tuberculosis Rates Increase

Autism Prevalence Higher, According to Data from 11 Communities

1 in 36 children at age 8 have been identified with ASD. The new findings are higher than the previous 2018 estimate that found a prevalence of 1 in 44 where data was pulled from 11 communities. A second report on 4-year-olds in the same communities shows disruptions in progress in early autism detection. Early in the pandemic, 4-year-olds were less likely to have an evaluation or be identified with ASD than 8-year-olds when they were the same age.

U.S. Cases of Tuberculosis Increased Again in 2022

Tuberculosis cases in 2022 increased but did not return to pre-pandemic levels. 2 years later, CDC data signal a rebound in cases and show considerable increases among some groups, including children aged 4 and under. Cases in this age group are particularly concerning, because they usually result from recent transmission versus reactivation of long-standing latent tuberculosis infection.
