Childhood Lead Poisoning

Metadata Updated: January 12, 2024

As of January 1, 2009, Connecticut law mandates that medical providers must conduct annual lead screening (i.e., blood lead testing) for each child 9 to 35 months of age. Furthermore, the law requires that any child between 36-72 months of age who has not been previously tested must also be tested by the child’s medical provider, regardless of risk.

This dataset includes various metrics about childhood lead screening in Connecticut, including:

Screening numbers and rates by birth cohort Demographic characteristics (age, gender, race/ethnicity) EBLL Hazard by source Paint vs non-paint hazard Relative Risk -% Incidence
