Abstract
CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Adult Blood Lead Epidemiology and Surveillance (ABLES) program monitors elevated blood lead levels (BLLs) in adults in the United States. Blood lead data from laboratory reports are transmitted to state-based lead surveillance programs and are compiled by NIOSH for quarterly reporting. The total number of elevated blood lead reports for 1994 increased 4% over 1993; this increase is attributed to the participation of two additional states (North Carolina and Oklahoma) Table_1. The number of reports in 1994 increased 5% at lower BLLs (25-39 ug/dL and 40-49 ug/dL) and decreased 18% at higher BLLs (50-59 ug/dL and greater than or equal to 60 ug/dL), compared with the number of reports in 1993.
