Investigating lead and its consequences became a part of our work after a request by the Detroit City Council. They asked that we evaluate the effect of new HUD regulations on lead remediation and rehabilitation programs. That led to analysis of blood lead data on children in the city and further investigations of the effects of lead on children. We have concentrated on mapping and analysis of blood lead data in relation to other data about the City of Detroit and the State of Michigan. We are currently working with the EPA to complete a series of maps of lead related issues in Southeast Michigan.
