Not everyone lives in the United States. In other countries the ICD-10 of the World Health Organization is used and Asperger's has not been removed from that manual. Also, everyone diagnosed with Asperger's in the US keeps their diagnosis until they are re-assessed, when in most cases they will get a new diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder instead.
