|IACC Strategic Plan Objective||2008||2009||2010||2011||2012||Total|
|Enhance existing case-control studies to enroll racially and ethnically diverse populations affected by ASD by 2011. |
IACC Recommended Budget: $3,300,000 over 5 years
|3.S.D. Funding: The recommended budget was not met; the funding allocated to projects specific to this objective falls far short of the recommendation. |
Progress: The UCLA ACE center coded to 3.L.B. reflects some progress on this objective. CADDRE also includes racially diverse participants from multiple urban centers. Overall, however, both funding and outcomes related to this objective are far below the goal.
Remaining Gaps, Needs, and Opportunities: There is a need for studies around high exposure, low socioeconomic status populations.
