Journal article estimates ADHD prevalence in U.S. children

A new journal article co-authored by CDC researchers and HRSA's Michael Kogan and Reem Ghandour estimates the national prevalence of parent-reported attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) diagnosis and treatment among U.S. children. 

The article is the first publication to use data from the latest National Survey on Children’s Health, a HRSA initiative that provides national and state level estimates of key measures of child health and well-being. 

The study found that, though the estimated prevalence of ADHD diagnosis does not appear to have increased in the time since previous estimates were published, a sizeable proportion of children and adolescents have been diagnosed, and many, but not all, are receiving treatment that appears to be generally consistent with clinical recommendations.
