Another new release from ICPSR that is too interesting not to mention.  The U.S. County-Level Natality and Mortality Data, 1915-2007 has nearly a century of detailed data on births and infant deaths for those looking for long-term patterns.

Historical Urban Ecological Data – Lead?

Historical Urban Ecological Data, 1830-1930, is a dataset available from ICPSR.  With lead contamination now in the news in Newark, NJ as well as Flint, MI, this may be a timely resource.

The HUE data covers seven cities (Baltimore, Boston, Brooklyn, Chicago, Cincinnati, Manhattan, and Philadelphia) for the years 1830 to 1930 and provides detailed disease reports by location, and includes in-street sewer and water sanitation systems.  Pretty good bet those were lead pipes.
