Indicator Place Year Value Notes

Notes for this city

Percent of Children Tested With Elevated Lead Levels: Note that there are not appropriate national data to use as a baseline for the percent of children tested with elevated blood lead level indicator. The city level data compiled here are in part based on number of children tested in a given jurisdiction. While the data are compiled with the same methodology, the percentages largely depend on who is being tested. Thus, city-to-city comparisons for this indicator should be made with caution due to differences in testing practices and policies that can affect elevated blood lead levels.
