Childhood Lead Poisoning: Incidence by Race/Ethnicity

Metadata Updated: August 12, 2023

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 shows the incidence of childhood lead poisoning by race/ethnicity.

Incidence = Number of new cases Incidence % = Number of new cases / Population screened with no history of elevated level
