Numbers out on ADHD cases

Close to one in ten school-age children have been diagnosed with ADHD.

That's according to data compiled by the New York Times.

The raw data came from a CDC survey of 76,000 parents.

It found 11% of school children had received a medical diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Overall, cases are up 16% since 2007 and more than 50% in the past decade.
