According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), a little over 2% (2.21%) of the adult population in the United States are on the Autism Spectrum. This is based on a study conducted in 2017 by the CDC. About 81% of the people in this population group are not employed. This number is based on a study conducted in 2017 by National Core Indicators. This is an organization that collects data about public developmental disabilities agencies to measure and track their performance.
