The Data Portal provides access to reports and data
Welcome to the New Mexico EPHT Data Portal. The NM EPHT website provides
different types of data which ranges from highly textual "EPHT Topics"
(contextual information about Health
and Environment) to
detailed numerical datasets. Listed below are the types of numerical
data offered as well as the links to access these data.
Below is a section for of each type of data product within
the data portal. Each section includes a decription and links to
the associated indexes that can be used locatae and to navigate to
the data. This includes:
NM EPHT indicators are numeric measures of the state or condition of the
environment and/or population health as a result of exposures to the
environment or other factors that we want to track. Indicator Reports provide
online numeric data combined with public health context (such as why it is
important and what is being done to improve it) for environmental factors
(e.g., levels of ozone as a way of gauging air quality) or health outcomes
(e.g., emergency department visits for asthma) potentially related to those
environmental factors along with charts, maps, and data values. To view
a report click on one of the indicator report index buttons below.
Community reports provide a summary of baseline conditions and
trends in a community and study area. It establishes the context
for assessing potential impacts and for project decision-making.
The community profile report provides a table of numerical data
based on a set of of health indicators for a given community.
The community dashboard report provides high level contextual
information as well as some detailed numerical visualizations
for a community.
"Queryable Datasets" provides access to public, deidentified datasets with
user-defined data criteria. The resultant data have limited contextual information
when compared to an indicator report but provides more flexibility when
analyzing data. These datasets are public and do not contain sensitive,
personal identifiable data values.
Some NM EPHT datasets can be queried in such a way that sensitive, small
population data results are possible. Users wishing to access these datasets
must apply for and receive authorization before access is granted.
Metadata are data about NM EPHT-acquired data and datasets. Once obtained,
NM EPHT datasets are critically examined to fully characterize and describe
the data elements, including the content, quality, and geographic and temporal
extent. Exploring metadata is a way to discover data and learn about the
NM EPHT datasets, specifically.
