Children living in rural areas are more likely to be diagnosed with a developmental disability compared with those living in urban areas, according to a study published online Feb. 19 in National Health Statistics Reports, a publication from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Benjamin Zablotsky, Ph.D., and Lindsey I. Black, M.P.H., from the National Centers for Health Statistics in Hyattsville, Maryland, used data from the 2015 to 2018 National Health Interview Survey to examine the prevalence of 10 parent- or guardian-reported developmental disability diagnoses among children aged 3 to 17 years.
