    Mental Retardation. The overall prevalence of mental retardation was per 1, children years of age, and approximately two thirds of cases were of mild severity. The prevalence of mental retardation varied with age, increasing from per 1, children years of age to per 1, children years of age. The prevalence of mental disorders has been studied around the world, providing estimates on how common mental disorders are. Different criteria or thresholds of severity have sometimes been used. National and international figures are typically estimated by large-scale surveys of self-reported symptoms up to the time of assessment; sometimes a figure is calculated for the .

    Modern statistical methods have told us a great deal about the prevalence of mental retardation. Still, the nature of this disabling condition makes it extremely hard to pin down — even with the most modern tools and procedures. Unlike blindness and obvious birth defects, in most cases mental retardation is an almost invisible disability. Aspects of prevention of pre-, peri- and postnatal brain pathology in severe and mild mental retardation An analysis from recent Swedish epidemiology research B. Hagberg, Gudrun Hagberg Pages

    Mental retardation can also be the result of extreme lack of oxygen near the time of birth. Mental retardation may develop in an older child as the result of serious head injury, stroke, or infections such as meningitis. Developmental tests are often used to assess the child with intellectual disability: Abnormal Denver developmental screening test. The NSCH began collecting information on the prevalence of ID or mental retardation in the – survey. Previous versions of the NSCH did not ask any questions about ID or mental retardation. The NSCH-estimated prevalence of children (2–17 years) who currently had the condition in – was percent (confidence interval [CI] 0.
