O NY Times lança luz sobre um  artigo recente que questiona a relação entre autismo e nível sócio-econômico. Vale a leitura da matéria e do paper original.

The higher rates of diagnosed autism among the wealthy has long been thought to be a result of higher rates of diagnosis (or “diagnostic ascertainment bias”) – i.e., wealthier families having better access to those who diagnose autism.  However, a new paper argues that the disease itself might actually be more common at the higher end of the income spectrum.
