This report presents research undertaken by Queensland Health on the blood lead levels of children between one and four years of age living in Mount Isa, Queensland. It is a follow up study to one completed in 2007. The aim of the current study was to continue the monitoring of blood lead levels in this age group. The results revealed a significant decline between study surveys, however for Indigenous children, on average, they have higher blood lead levels. The report discusses the implications of the results.
