Table 1: Number and Percent of Children Screened for Elevated Blood Lead by Age and County of Residence; 2001 - 2002 Birth Cohorts (2001 to 2005 Blood Lead Test Data)1, New York State Excluding New York City.

Table 1 shows the number and percent of children born in 2001 and 2002 who were screened for elevated blood lead by age and county of residence. Screening measures are categorized by the age at which the lead test was performed: less than age one year (0 to < 9 months), at or around age one year (9 months to < 18 months), and at or around age two years (18 months to < 36 months). In addition, the number and percent of children receiving at least two screening tests by age three years are shown. County-specific data helps the state, local health departments (LHDs) and other partners monitor progress and target efforts to improve lead screening practices across the state.

In addition to the county-specific data summarized in Table 1, variation in screening rates across counties is illustrated in Maps 1 - 3.
