autism links why not do a study?

I'm a lurker who is cautiously not vaccinating my 6 month old because I have yet to see better evidence for vaccines than against.
I have a question, perhaps someone knows the answer.
So I am wondering this: If there is supposedly NO link from vaccines to autism, then why is there not a simple study that looks at a cross-section of children between the late onset autism ages (whatever it is, say 1.5yrs -3yrs of age). They could then show the percentages of children who acquired autism later in terms of those who had received vaccines, and those who hadn't.
Why does no study like this exist? Or, if it does, could someone point me to it? I think this would go far to presenting evidence either way.
Sorry, just in case you haven't figured it out, I know very little about vaccines as of yet, so please don't get offended by this possibly hopelessly naive posting.
