URZUA M, ALFONSO et al. Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in School Age Children in Antofagasta. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.4, pp.332-338. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41062009000400004.

Objective: To evaluate the prevalence of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in the city of Antofagasta. Patients and Methods: Teachers and parents of 640 children (290 boys and 350 girls) between 6 and 11 years, from public, subsidized and private schools were evaluated through the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Rating Scale-IV [ADHD-RS IV]. Results: Utilizing the ADHD Scale independently, the prevalence ranged between 5% and 15% depending on the informant. This number decreased to 2% when the criteria were required both at home and school environments. Conclusion: In our population the prevalence of ADHD is highest in boys 6 to 8 years of age, being the combined disorder the most common subtype found in this group.
