Wisconsin Childhood Lead Poisoning Data

Annual Reports

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.

Searchable Databases

Use this online query system of blood lead tests of children under the age of 6 to find testing and poisoning rates statewide and by county, local health department jurisdiction and select cities from 2002 to 2007.

The Wisconsin Environmental Public Health Tracking Program webpage is a resource where you can query data on childhood lead poisoning in Wisconsin and other environmental and health topics.

Geographic Information System (GIS) Maps

Maps for each county, select cities and Wisconsin legislative districts showing that old housing is associated with where children have been found to be lead poisoned are available by request to the Wisconsin Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention, 1-608-266-5817.

Data Analysis

The data analysis section contains graphs of (1) the trend of testing for and identifying childhood lead poisoning in Wisconsin from 2002 to 2009; (2) the four risk factors that put children at highest risk for childhood lead poisoning: age 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.
