Table 2a: Number and Average of Children Under Age Six Years Newly Identified with Elevated Blood Lead Levels by Incident Blood Lead Level and County of Residence, 2005 - 2007, New York State Excluding New York City

Table 2a shows the number and three year average of incident cases of elevated blood lead levels among children under age six years of age in 2005, 2006, and 2007 by county of residence. Incident results are grouped by blood lead level category: 10 - 14 mcg/dL; 15 - 19 mcg/dL; and ≥ 20 mcg/dL. In addition, the total number of incident cases ≥ 10 mcg/dL is shown for each year, along with the total number of children tested for lead. Statewide figures are included for comparison. County-specific data helps the state, Local Health Departments (LHDs) and other partners monitor progress and target efforts to prevent and eliminate childhood lead poisoning across the state.

Data from Table 2a was used to produce Map 4, a map which shows the geographic distribution by county of newly identified children with elevated blood lead levels.

County Year of Test Number of Newly Identified 10 - 14 mcg/dL Number of Newly Identified 15 - 19 mcg/dL Number of Newly Identified ≥ 20 mcg/dL Total Number of Newly Identified ≥ 10 mcg/dL Number Tested Incidence Rate per 1,000 Children Tested ≥ 10 mcg/dL1
