The foremost cause of childhood lead poisoning in the United States today is lead-based paint (LBP) and the accompanying contaminated dust and soil found in older housing. Exposure to lead in paint can come from the paint chips themselves, from dust caused by abrasion of paint on friction surfaces, or from chalking of exterior paint. Lead was a major ingredient in most interior and exterior oil-based house paints prior to 1950, with some paints containing as much as 50 percent lead by dry weight. LBP is defined as paint containing greater than or equal to 0.5 percent lead by weight in dry film. The U.S, Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates that three-quarters of pre-1980 housing contains some LBP. The likelihood, extent, and concentration of LBP all increase with age of the housing unit.
