    20 years ago, the answer was about 0.8% of the population. Right now, it's the 'diagnosis du jour' and current figures are around 3-5%. In a few years, it will no longer be a trendy diagnosis, the dilletantes will have got bored of the side effects of heavy duty psychiatric drugs and it will probably fall to around 1% again.

  • It seems as if the majority of them are.
