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.

Data Notes

  • American Community Survey Queries

    The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing survey conducted by the United States Bureau of the Census. It gathers data on demographic, economic and social characteristics at various geographic levels within the United States. Data from the ACS are aggregated into one, three and five year periods. The data presented in this query tool are aggregated at the five year level, which makes these estimates more stable for New Mexico's sparsely populated areas.

    To improve the accuracy of the population count estimates in the data table, where feasible, the mid-year population estimates produced by the University of New Mexico Geospatial and Population Studies (GPS) Program have been used. For instance, the ACS percentage from the 2012-2016 dataset were applied to 2014 New Mexico GPS population estimates to provide an estimate for the number of New Mexicans affected. To see which person or household count estimates were used for this query, please see the data sources section.

    The estimates for New Mexico's 108 Small Areas were calculated by aggregating the ACS data at the census tract level and pooling the standard errors.

Data Issue

New Mexico Small Areas are 108 geographic areas across the state with population sizes that are just large enough to calculate rates for selected health events (e.g., diabetes deaths, asthma hospitalization, etc.). New Mexico small areas were based on population size, not land area. Most (95%) of the New Mexico small areas range in population size from 9,000 to 30,000 persons. Some counties have multiple small areas (Bernalillo County has 34 small areas within its boundaries). In other cases, entire counties (e.g., Harding, Quay and De Baca Counties) were combined to create a single small area.

Small Area median values were estimated as the median of the census tract medians for census tracts that comprise the small area.
