Notes for this indicator
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.
For some cities, county level data was provided: Los Angeles County for Los Angeles, CA; Bexar County for San Antonio, TX; Alameda County for Oakland, CA.
