Increase in NIH autism projects over the past decade

18 Jan

We hear repeatedly how research interest in autism has climbed in the past decade. I was looking through the NIH database of autism research projects and I decided to check on the number of projects that the NIH has funded by year.

Here are those data: research projects by fiscal year. In the past 10 years, the number of projects funded per year has increased by about 3x or 4x.

Quantity isn’t the same thing as quality by a long shot. But I do find this very encouraging.
