National estimates of blood lead levels: United States, 1976-1980: association with selected demographic and socioeconomic factors



New England Journal of Medicine 307(10): 573-579



Data from the second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey showed that 22% of persons 6 months to the end of 74 years old had blood lead values under 10 mu g/100 ml; 1.9% had high values, 30 mu g/100 ml (1.45 mu mol/litre) or more. Among children 6 months to the end of 5 years old the prevalence of high values was significantly greater (4%) than previously predicted on the basis of less information.
