A survey has found that attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder can result in loss of income for the US of $77 billion a year. People with ADHD were more likely to have lower education levels, have lower levels of employment and earn less. ADHD is difficult to diagnose in adults, sometimes manifesting as depression or anxiety. Recent studies indicate that ADHD could be undiagnosed in as high at 80% of adults. Screening tests and heightening population awareness of the condition has been initiated to deal with the deficit in diagnosis.
