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.
Opioid-Related Unintentional Drug Overdose Mortality Rate: This indicator is not exclusive of other drugs that may be included in multiple cause of death fields, such as heroin (T40.1), cocaine (T40.5), benzodiazepines (T42.4), psychostimulants with abuse potential (T43.6), other and unspecified narcotics (T40.6), or drugs not elsewhere classified (T50.9). Morphine and heroin are metabolized similarly. This may result in the over-reporting of drug poisonings associated with the effects of opioid analgesics.
For some indicators, Los Angeles County level data was provided: Life Expectancy at Birth.
