HUD National Survey: Findings on the Lead Paint Hazard in Homes


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sponsored a national survey of lead-based paint in housing, with technical support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In that sample survey, 381 housing units were inspected for lead in paint on interior and exterior surfaces, lead in interior dust, and lead in exterior soil. National estimates of the extent of the lead paint hazard in homes are presented. Data are presented on the prevalence, condition and amount of lead-based paint in housing. Also presented are findings from the national survey on the sources and pathways of lead in homes.
