" The increase in prevalence numbers is not a compelling piece of evidence that vaccines are the cause of an “autism epidemic,” no matter how much antivaccinationists try to convince you otherwise."

This is true, if left to anti vaxxers who think less are vaccinating, then rates should be going down. As anti vaxxers spew on about the newest rates, look at the study itself. The 7 states that had access to educational records all had a higher than normal autism prevalence, more than likely the result of double counting the same person which is a problem in every prevalence study ever done.
More children without intellectual disability are being diagnosed with ASD. In the past, these children likely would not have been diagnosed with ASD—or with anything at all. Now they are being diagnosed.

And best of all, the horrible CDC conducted this study, remember that as anti vaxxers abuse the study.

The facts are as follows: The autism rates are an estimate of the USA only and no where else. The autism prevalence by no means determines cause hello and those who make it about cause are abusing the study itself. Thanks again for demonstrating my prediction.
Translation DUH
