Autism, the disorder without borders and geopolitical variations

Prevalence of a disease, including new and preexisting cases, is ‘the proportion of individuals in a population who have a particular disease or attribute at a specified period of time’ (according to the CDC). It is exceedingly difficult to determine Autism prevalence as many dynamic conditions influence the calculations including unequal distribution of socio-economic resources, diverse cultures with unique views of disease and treatment, and meagre or non-existent meaningful instruments for identification and intervention in the population’s specific context. Each geopolitical region requires factoring these issues into their calculations, consequently, complex algorithms are employed when establishing prevalence data.
