MMWR: QuickStats: Percentage* of Children Aged 1–5 Years with Elevated Blood Lead Levels,† by Race/E

Thursday, October 6, 2016   (0 Comments)

From 1988–1994 to 2007–2014, the percentage of children aged 1–5 years with blood lead levels ≥5 μg/dL declined from 25.6% to 1.9%. Blood lead levels fell dramatically for all racial and ethnic groups. Despite the decline, in 2007–2014, non-Hispanic black children (4.0%) aged 1–5 years were twice as likely as non-Hispanic white children (1.9%) and more than three times as likely as Mexican American children (1.1%) to have elevated blood lead levels.
