Table 1: Number and Percent of Children Who Received Blood Lead Screening Tests by Age and County of Residence; 2003 - 2004 Birth Cohorts (2003 to 2007 Blood Lead Test Data)1 New York State Excluding New York

Table 1 shows the number and percent of children born in 2003 to 2004 who received blood lead screening tests by age and county of residence. Screening test measures are categorized by the age at which the blood 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 blood lead 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 testing practices across the state.

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