Wisconsin Childhood Lead
The annual reports on
childhood lead poisoning in Wisconsin include the number of children
tested and poisoned and number of cases (level of lead in blood requires
intervention) at age one, age two, ages zero to five and for three to five
year olds not previously tested for each local health department
jurisdiction. Also includes prevalence rates and rates for children enrolled
in Medicaid and WIC programs.
The Wisconsin Environmental Public Health Tracking Program
webpage is a resource where you can query

of child, age of housing, socioeconomic status, and racial and ethnic
disparities; and (3) summary performance data of health care and WIC providers'
blood lead testing practices of at-risk children.
