Query Results for New Mexico Birth Data, by NM Social Determinants of Health - Percentage With Prenatal Care in the First Trimester

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

Query Criteria

Measure Description:Percentage of women with a live birth whose first prenatal care visit was in the first trimester of their pregnancy.
Year Filter: 2015, 2016, 2017
Data Grouped By:Percentage in Census Tract in Poverty

Data Notes

  • New Mexico Resident Births

    This query includes only births to women who were New Mexico residents.
  • Prenatal Care Schedule

    Doctors recommend that mothers-to-be see their health care provider before the 13th week of pregnancy and to go back for at least 13 visits before birth. (Go before week 13 and get 13 visits.)
  • Social Determinants of Health Queries

    Social determinants of health (SDH) are conditions in the environments in which people live that affect a wide range of health outcomes and risks. For more information on the social determinants of health please visit the Please visit the [https://ibis.doh.nm.gov/topic/population/socialdeterminants/Introduction.html IBIS social determinants topic page].

    In these queries users are able to analyze birth and death data by selected measures that are considered social determinants of health. The measures in these queries consist of census-tract-level estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year samples. The measures were linked by census tract and year to geocoded birth and death data to assign the census tract SDH value to each individual data record. The result is an ecological analysis that allows users to understand the effects that the SDH may have on health outcomes in New Mexico.

    The ACS data represent a 5-year period, whereas the birth and death data are reported by single year. To account for that difference, the 5-year ACS estimates were linked to the birth and death datasets for the mid-year of the ACS survey period. For instance, the 2010-2016 ACS estimate was linked to the 2012 birth data because 2012 is the middle year of the 2010-2016 ACS period. The 2012-2016 ACS estimates were also linked to the 2015 and 2016 birth data because mid-year ACS data for those years (5-year ACS estimates for 2013-2017 and 2014-2018) were not yet available. This methodology, including the reasoning behind our six poverty cutoff categories, was adapted from methodology developed by the CSTE that may be found in the [http://www.cste.org/resource/resmgr/Webinars/CSTEWebinarCTPovertyAnalysis.ppt CSTE Webinar Library].

    The SDH currently allow users to look at individual level birth and death data by an SDH measure for the individual's census tract. It is important to note that this is an ecological analysis. As such, these queries do not allow users to draw conclusions about relationships between individual characteristics and individual outcomes. They represent individual characteristics' association with census tract level demographic characteristics.

Data Issues

  • Changes to U.S. Standard Birth Certificate Caused Discontinuity in Data Over Time

    Beginning with 2008 births, New Mexico implemented the 2003 U.S. standard birth certificate in alignment with the National Center for Health Statistics. As a result of national changes to question wording and format, some information is not comparable between the 1989 and 2003 birth certificate revisions. This information includes educational attainment, month and trimester prenatal care began, and tobacco use during pregnancy (and, for New Mexico, calculated gestation). In addition, initially, the transition to new questions may have resulted in more incomplete information. For education and prenatal care, differences between years prior to 2008 and births in 2008 and later years are largely related to changes in reporting rather than changes in educational attainment or prenatal care utilization. For more information, refer to New Mexico Selected Health Statistics [http://nmhealth.org/data/view/vital/560/ Annual Report, 2008], pages 136-139.
  • 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).
  • Geocoded Data Used in NM-IBIS Queries

    Locating a data record in a New Mexico Small Area, legislative district, or census tract (for social determinants of health) required geocoding (assigning latitude and longitude to) the residential address for each health event (birth, death, cancer incidence, etc.). Sometimes health events, especially those with addresses such as P.O boxes or rural routes, could not be assigned to a geographic area. Excluding these records from the query result introduces bias (underestimates of counts and rates) into the results. This was more likely to occur in rural areas of the state where P.O. boxes and rural routes are more common, but may have occurred in any geographic area.
  • Infant's Gestational Age

    Gestational age is derived from date of last normal menstrual period. In cases where menstrual period information is missing or does not concur with infant birthweight, the physician's estimated gestational age is used.
  • Social Determinants of Health

    It is important to understand that these queries present an ecological analysis. Individuals have been grouped by census tract, and the attributes of that census tract have been compared to individual attributes. Associations at the census tract level may not apply to individuals in that census tract. The term "ecological fallacy" is used when the findings for the geographic areas are applied to individuals in the area.
  • 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.
