MMWR: QuickStats: Percentage* of Children Aged 5–17 Years with Diagnosed Attention Deficit/Hyperacti

Thursday, October 15, 2015   (0 Comments)

During 2011–2014 approximately 10% of all children aged 5–17 years were reported by parents to have been diagnosed with ADHD. The percentage of children who had ever been diagnosed with ADHD was significantly higher among boys (14%) than among girls (6%) overall and within each poverty status category. Among both boys and girls, poor children (i.e., those living in families with incomes <100% of the poverty level) were more likely to have been diagnosed with ADHD than children living in families with incomes ≥400% of the poverty level.
