Is there any place to find the autism rates by country. I think the US ranks 1st in # of vaccines? Do we have the highest autism rates?

The US does have the highest # of shots (now over 36 whereas most countries it is about 12), and we also have the highest rate of autism:

Its hard to say, as the diagnostic criteria varies from country to country.

Actually most countries use the same DSM-IV criteria.

It is interesting.  It does not prove that vaccines (which I dislike, btw) causes autism.  There could be something else going on in the USA relating to high incidents of autism.

 

I did not see Canada rates listed on the chart for autism - which disappoints me (now I am going to have to look it up, lol).  I bet it is high.  

 

Edited to add:  Autism Canada purs it at 1/165.
