Welcome to the Lead Risk Index

The National Minority Quality Forum has launched the Lead Risk Index to help health-care practitioners, policymakers, advocacy groups and industry gain a full understanding of childhood lead poisoning at the local level.

Nationally, an estimated 750,000 children under age six have an elevated blood lead level of 5 micrograms per deciliter or above, the level that represents the CDC's reference value for lead poisoning in children.

Map the estimated prevalence of elevated blood lead levels in children under age six to the zip code level, further segmented by gender and race/ethnicity.
