The Political Economy of Autism
2018-10-01, Author, Rogers, Toby M.
Autism is a global epidemic. An estimated 1 in 40 children in Australia, 1 in 64 children in the U.K., and 1 in 36 children in the U.S. have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This is an enormous increase from the first known autism prevalence study in the U.S. in 1970, that established an autism prevalence rate of less than 1 per 10,000. Several studies have shown that changes in diagnostic criteria account for only a small fraction of the increased prevalence. Families of children on the spectrum face extraordinary additional expenses and decreased earnings as one parent often becomes a caregiver. Autism cost the U.S. $268 billion (1.5% of GDP) in 2015; if autism continues to increase at its current rate, autism will cost the U.S. over $1 trillion (3.6% of GDP) in 2025 (as a point of comparison, U.S. Defense Department spending is 3.1% of GDP).

A study by Rutgers University has found that the rate of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) four-year-old children in New Jersey rose by 43 percent from 2010 to 2014, to an estimated rate of 1 in 35 children—the highest of any state in the United States. According to the research, which was published earlier this year in a report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the prevalence of ASD in New Jersey was 19.7 per 1,000 children in 2010, compared to 28.4 per 1,000 in 2014.

Toxicology

NEW VAX VS. UNVAX DATA: Autism Rates Show Unvaccinated At 1 in 715, Partially Vaccinated 1 in 440
3/17/2019
It was in late February when Oregon officials heard testimony on House Bill 3063 (HB 3063), a new bill seeking to eliminate all non-medical exemptions to vaccination in the state. At the time, much of Oregon was still reeling from a historic winter storm that caused an airport closure, brought cities to a standstill due to massive snowfall, and caused the Oregon Department of Transportation to shut down several highways. Despite the weather conditions, the bill’s hearing was moved up a full week and residents were given only two days notice to attend. Nevertheless, the hearing drew hundreds of parents as opb.org wrote, “Normally sedate hallways were packed with giggling kids…Two overflow rooms quickly filled with people — many wearing stickers opposing House Bill…”
