Lead poisoning in childhood is an important public health problem, and thus, it is important to determine how children are exposed to lead.
In 1987, the authors conducted an exposure assessment and blood lead screening for children aged 6-71 months living in Leadville, Colorado.
High levels of lead had been found in the soil as a result of both past mining and smelting activities and natural mineralization.
Blood was collected from each child for lead analysis, and behavioral characteristics were identified through an interview with a parent or guardian.
