|Wisconsin County Maps (1996 - 2001)
Maps with 3 views are available for every county in Wisconsin and
cities with a population of 20,000 or greater. The blood lead data represented in these
maps is for children under the age of six tested from 1995 to 2001.
Map 1 - The top left-hand map shows different shaded areas with each shade
representing the percentage of houses built prior to 1950. The greater the
percent of houses built prior to 1950, the darker the shading. Houses built prior to 1950 in Wisconsin have a high probability of
containing paint with a high concentration of lead. If the paint is in
poor condition it poses a serious threat to children’s health.
Map 2 - The bottom left-hand map shows the locations of children who have been
tested for lead poisoning over the period of 1995-2001.
Map 3 - The larger right-hand map indicates the locations of
children who have been lead poisoned (a blood lead level of
greater than or equal to 10 micrograms per deciliter).
