Examining the Effect of Previously Missing Blood Lead Surveillance Data on Results Reported in MMWR

May 2010
MMWR: Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report;5/21/2010, Vol. 59 Issue 19, p592
The article focuses on the effect of missing data from a blood lead test analysis by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Washington, D.C. It states that due to high concentrations of lead in residential tap water, the CDC performed a study using blood lead surveillance data for 1998-2003. The study was missing ample data, thus a reanalysis was made in 2009 with the missing blood test results in 2003. It is noted that the missing data did not change the conclusions of the 2003 study.
