Childhood Lead Poisoning Data

The EPHT Program obtains state and local data about childhood blood lead levels from the NH Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program. When a child is tested for lead poisoning, state and local childhood lead poisoning prevention programs collect information about the child, including the child's test results and any potential sources of lead in the child's environment. These programs share some of this information with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to compile in a national database. CDC's Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program provides technical and financial assistance to state and local programs and provides national guidance and policy for the prevention and treatment of childhood lead poisoning.

Data for childhood lead poisoning in New Hampshire are available on the Environmental Health Data Integration Network (EHDIN).
