NEW YORK, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Epidemiology: Autism Spectrum Disorders

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0460815/Epidemiology-Autism-Spectrum-Disorders.html

The prevalence of autism spectrum disorders has dramatically increased over the last few decades to the current prevalence of approximately 1%. It is most likely that the increase in autism spectrum disorders is a result of changes in diagnostic criteria that have expanded the range of the disorder spectrum and greater overall disorder awareness in populations. Gain insight to market potential, including a robust 10-year epidemiology forecast of autism spectrum disorder prevalent cases. Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with autism spectrum disorders. Datamonitor estimates that, during 2011, 6,594,000 prevalent cases of autism spectrum disorders will exist in the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK). The largest number of cases will be in the US (2,613,000), with Japan having the next largest number of cases (1,411,000).Between 2011 and 2021, Datamonitor expects the number of autism spectrum disorder prevalent cases in the seven major markets to increase slightly by 3.4%. This weak rising trend is attributable to overall population growth across these markets. In 2011, Datamonitor estimates that, in the seven major markets, the majority of autism spectrum disorder cases will be autistic disorders (52%). Datamonitor estimates that there will be 3.4 million autistic disorder cases and 3.1 million other autism spectrum disorder cases in these markets during 2011. What are the most robust sources for autism spectrum disorder prevalence data? How will the patient population change over the next decade in the US, Japan, and five major EU markets (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK)?What are the major influencing factors for autism spectrum disorders that drive the trend in prevalent cases and how are they changing?
