Health Status Outcomes for Lead Exposure - Children Under Age Three Years with Confirmed Elevated Blood Lead Levels

Health Status Outcomes

Childhood lead testing rates are helpful for interpreting the data on elevated blood lead levels. If the childhood lead testing rate is low for a county, the results on elevated blood lead levels cannot be generalized to the children in that county. If the childhood lead testing rate is high for a county, then the results on elevated blood lead levels are more likely to represent lead exposure rates among children in that county.
