Wisconsin Childhood Lead Poisoning Data Explorer

This application is presented to you by Lead-Safe Wisconsin.

The maps in this application show the number of Wisconsin children under age 6 who were identified as lead poisoned and the number of Wisconsin children under age 6 who received a blood lead test. The application also contains interactive maps of environmental and social characteristics that may be associated with an increased risk of lead exposure and lower blood lead testing rates among children. Click the legend on the map to learn more about a specific dataset.

Comprehensive childhood lead data, by year, age, race, and other geographies, is available on the Wisconsin DHS GIS Open Data site.

If you have questions about the data or feedback about the application, email the Wisconsin Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program at DHSLeadPoisoningPrevention@dhs.wisconsin.gov
