Abstract
Over 95% of elevated blood lead (7439921) levels in the United States reported in adults are a result of exposure in the workplace. Starting with this report, NIOSH will report quarterly the summary results of state based surveillance programs for elevated blood lead levels among adults. Of the 21 states with current blood lead surveillance programs, 12 currently maintain the data entry and analytic capability needed to provide quarterly reports. NIOSH will assist the other states in standardizing reporting fields and in providing for timely analysis of the data. There were 3,757 reports of adults with elevated blood lead levels in the 12 states for the second quarter of 1992, including 105 with levels at or above 60 micrograms/deciliter.
