A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals autism rates have surged at an alarming rate since 2010. The CDC reports the average rate of autism is 1 in 59 for children in Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Utah and Wisconsin. The researchers studied health records for 4-year-olds between 2010 and 2014 and 8-year-olds within the same time frame. Between 2010 and 2014, New Jersey saw a 43 percent spike in autism cases, the largest of any state measured in the study. The researchers don't know why autism rates have gone up throughout the country. However, factors such as parents over age 30 having children, genetic mutations, early births and more than one birth might explain the uptick.
