Ewelina works as a researcher on a project looking at health of adults with autism

 

 

We wanted to know how adults with autism rate their own health

 

 

We used information from the 2011 Scottish Census to explore this

 

 

Information on 6,649 adults aged 25 and over with autism was included in the Scottish Census

 

 

Adults with autism across all ages were more likely to report poor health

 

 

Women with autism and older people were most likely to report poor health
