Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Blood lead levels provide a measure ofhuman lead exposure resulting from all environmental sources. The quantification of relations between environmental exposure and blood lead levels, especially in children, is of considerable importance for assessing the relative contributions of various sources of environmental lead and for judging the adequacy of control measures (1-3). The present report is part of a research program exploring several large data sets of pediatric blood lead levels collected by local lead poisoning screening programs. We have previously reported (4) on the analysis of venous blood lead levels of 178.533 New York City children screened for the first time during 1970-1976. This investigation revealed a significant relationship between geometric mean (GM) blood lead levels and ambient air lead measurements obtained from a single sampling station in Manhattan. We now expand upon and refine these findings by considering another possible indicator of lead exposure: lead in gasoline.
