The concentration of lead in the ambient atmosphere was determined at 59 sampling sites in eight American communities during the period 1968-71. Nineteen sampling sites had existed in a similar survey in 1961-62. At 14 of these sites the lead-in-air value was found to be higher in the current study than in 1961-62. The observed annual mean atmospheric concentration of lead varied from 0.14 microgram/cubic meter (Los Alamos) to 4.55 microgram/cubic meter (Downtown Los Angeles). Higher lead values were associated with urbanization. The concentration of lead in the blood of specific well-defined populations was determined. Such populations lived in geogrphic proximity to specific air sampling sites. Factors such as smoking, aging, weight are discussed.
