Really need more clarity in what you are asking? If this is a home that you are fixing up, you can get test kits to check.

Short answer, NO, not all. But, lead wasn't completely removed from paint (at least lawfully) until 1978, although most manu's removed it long before that. The only way to know for sure though is to test.
