The article reports a population based cohort study on the early life risk factors for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Male sex and low parental education levels are significant risk factors for ADHD. Results indicate that male sex and low parental education levels are significant risk factors for ADHD. In addition, boys born to parents with low maternal and paternal education levels appear to be at an increased risk for ADHD compared with girls born to parents with low education levels.
