      Despite India's being the second most populous country in the world with over 1.2 billion people, there is no estimate of how many people in the country have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Such an estimate is crucial in fixing policy and guiding allocation of resources for individuals and families affected by ASD, in a way that accommodates the cultures and norms of the country and its people. We measured autism-related symptoms in 11,849 school-going children aged between 3 and 8, in one major city of India (Kolkata). Data were taken from surveys of parents and teachers, followed up with our own in-person assessments. In comparison to teachers, parents as a group tended to over-report autism-related symptoms in their children. As a result, many children underwent follow-up screening, which took place via a detailed diagnostic assessment. After accounting for drop-outs at various stages, our estimate of school-children affected by ASD or broader autism spectrum was 0.23%. As ∼20% children in this state are known to be out of the school system, and ASD prevalence is likely to be higher in this group, this estimate represents the lower limit of the true estimate. Potential sources for cultural/geographic differences in ASD prevalence are discussed.
