Query Result Page Options

This option remembers your currently selected filtering criteria and display options and applies (

Restrictions/conditions:

  • This features only effects queryable datasets loaded after the apply criteria feature is enabled.
  • When a new queryable dataset is loaded, this features does NOT clean/clear any of that dataset's default selected values - it simply supplements the newly loaded dataset's selections with those values captured when the apply criteria feature was enabled.
  • When in the builder interface you can override and make additional changes (select or deselect).
  • Changes made in the builder interface are not automatically saved to the enabled apply criteria definition. However, once you have a result you can reapply the current critera by using this dialog and pressing the "Reapply" button. If you do not see this button then the apply criteria feature has not been enabled.
  • Selections are applied according to what selections are available within that given queryable dataset. For example if your apply criteria is set for years 1999-2015 and the dataset does not have 1999 then only years 2000-2015 will be selected.
  • This feature is available immediately and does not require any user login account. However, if you wish to save this definition you will need to have either a free self registered user account or a secure DOH account and be logged in to be able to save your definitions.
  • TURNING OFF: These selections will remain in effect for the length of your current session on this site. It is turned off by pressing the "Clear" button.
  • TECHNICAL NOTE: The selection's internal dimension names and values MUST match. In some instances a value's title shown to the user will look the same as the dataset's but it is stored internally with a different name or value so they do not match and thus will not be selected. As an end user there is nothing that can be done about this situation because this is something the dataset author must setup. If you see something like this please contact us and report this issue.
) to all subseqent dataset query requests. This feature can help you save time and be consistent by automatically applying your defined selections to other queryable datasets you open.

One Example:

Doing studies on different datasets like you want to look at different survey datasets for hispanic females for years 2015-2018. You want to always display a county choropleth map and a horizontal bar chart. You make those initial selections, submit your selections, enable this apply criteria feature. From then on, those selections are automatically applied (as much as possible) to all subsequent queryable datasets you open.

Name Field

Unique name of this query definition. The name value needs to be a unique value within YOUR list of saved query definitions. The name value is used as part of the HTTP request URL to reference this query definition.

It is recommend you name your definitions in a consistent manner to help referencing and sharing with others. Names can be up to 250 characters long and can not contain spaces or special characters. Valid values for a name include upper and/or lower case alphabetic characters (A-z), and/or numeric values (0-9), and/or a dash or underscore that can be used as a seperator ("-", and/or "_").

If you name this definition the same name as an existing definition you will overwrite the current definition with this new one.

Title Field

The title value is the title you will see on your query definition selection lists. It is recommended that you keep your titles and unique so that they are meaningful, consistent, and easily identifyable. Titles can be a maximum length of 250 characters long. Use the "Description" field to list any extra details or notes that you'd like to have associated with this definition.

Description Field

The "Description" entry is provided as a place that you can store any notes or special descriptions that will allow you to use that definition. This can include descriptions like intended studies, limitations, and notes that can be used to help you remember what this definition was intended to be used for. A synopsis of the selections can also prove to be helpful but are not needed as the definition detail provides all of the selections. This field shows up on the list pages as an information popup next to the definition's title text.

Keep Definition Private Checkbox

The "Keep Private" checkbox controls if you want your query definition to be listable by other users. If checked then a user can not see this definition when they make a list request of your definitions.

Year Filter: 2013-2017
Data Grouped By:NM Small Areas

  • **The estimate has been suppressed because the number of events and population size are small and not appropriate for publication, or it could be used to calculate the number in a cell that has been suppressed.
  • #This count or rate is statistically unstable (RSE >0.30), and may fluctuate widely across time periods due to random variation (chance). Please use caution in interpreting this value, or combine years, areas, or age groups to increase the population size.

Data Notes

  • ICD Codes

    ICD Stands for International Classification of Diseases. It is a coding system maintained by the World Health Organization and the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics used to classify causes of death on death certificates and diagnoses, injury causes, and medical procedures for hospital and emergency department visits. These codes are updated every decade or so to account for advances in medical technology. The U.S. is currently using the 10th revision (ICD-10) to code causes of death.
  • Infant Mortality

    Infant mortality is defined as the death of an infant under one year of age. Neonatal mortality is the death of an infant age 0 to 27 days, and postneonatal mortality, an infant age 28 to 364 days. The Infant Mortality Rate is most often calculated as infant deaths in a given year per 1,000 live births in the same year (death period method). This NM-IBIS query module uses the "death period" method. Infant mortality may also be calculated as deaths of infants born in a given year per 1,000 infants born in that year. That method of calculating infant mortality is called the birth cohort method.

  • NM-IBIS Map Guidance

    For guidance on NM-IBIS map categories, please visit the [[a href="./resources/MapChoroClasses.html" IBIS map guidance page]].
  • New Mexico Resident Infant Deaths

    The NM-IBIS Infant Mortality query module includes only deaths of infants who were residents of New Mexico. Infants who were non-residents, and deaths for which state residency was unknown have been excluded.
  • U.S. Data

    Comparable data for the U.S. and other states may be found on the CDC's Wide-ranging ONline Data for Epidemiologic Research (CDC WONDER) [https://wonder.cdc.gov].

Data Sources

Data Issues

  • *SUID versus SIDS

    Many infant deaths previously ruled SIDS by pathologists or coroners are now usually coded as one of three Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) causes of death: ICD-10=R95 (SIDS), ICD-10=W75 (Accidental Suffocation or Strangulation in Bed) and ICD-10=R99 (Unknown or ill-defined) cause. Here's a link to a Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) factsheet that is useful: [https://www.cdc.gov/sids/pdf/sudden-unexpected-infant-death.pdf].
  • Confidence Intervals for Zero Values

    For rates where the count is zero, a numerator of "3" was used to calculate the confidence interval (per Lilienfeld and Stolley, __Foundations of Epidemiology__, 1994, p. 303).
  • Death Certificate Data

    Death certificates in New Mexico are required to be filed by funeral directors. Funeral directors obtain demographic information from an informant, a close family member of the decedent. The cause of death is certified by the decedent's physician or the physician that attended the death. Accidental and suspicious deaths are certified by the Office of the Medical Investigator. Death certificate data go through extensive edits for completeness and consistency. The DOH Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics (BVRHS) does annual trainings for funeral directors and local registrars.

    When death certificates are received the cause of death literals are keyed into software locally by the BVRHS, then shipped to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) where they are machine coded into ICD-10 cause-of-death codes. NCHS returns the ICD-10 codes to BVRHS where the death records are updated.

  • Birth Certificate Data

    Birth certificate information is submitted electronically by hospital medical records staff who use standard mother and facility worksheets and medical charts to collect the needed information. Training of hospital staff is provided by the Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics (BVRHS). The birth certificate information is reviewed by BVRHS for completeness and consistency with state law and NMDOH and national guidelines. BVRHS will contact hospital staff for clarification of missing, inconsistent or incorrect entries. CDC's National Center for Health Statistics provides feedback to BVRHS on data quality and the NMDOH provides feedback to the hospitals to improve data quality and training.
