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.

Query Criteria

Percentage no seasonal flu vaccination in last year vs. had vaccination Filter: Had Flu Vaccination
Year Filter: 2018, 2019, 2020
Data Grouped By:County of Residence

  • **Percentages based on fewer than 50 completed surveys are not shown because they do not meet the DOH standard for data release.

Data Notes

  • Asymmetric Confidence Intervals

    The confidence bounds are asymmetric. They do not extend evenly above and below the percentage, especially as the percentage gets close to 0% or 100%.
  • NM-IBIS Map Guidance

    For guidance on NM-IBIS map categories, please visit the [[a href="./resource/MapChoroClasses.html" IBIS map guidance page]].
  • Question Wording:

    A flu shot is an influenza vaccine injected in your arm. During the past 12 months, have you had a flu shot? During the past 12 months, have you had a flu vaccine that was sprayed in your nose? The flu vaccine that is sprayed in the nose is also called FluMist.
  • U.S. Data

    Comparable data for the U.S. and other states may be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) website, [https://www.cdc.gov/brfss/].
  • Weighted Survey Data

    The percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the sample so that the results better represent the New Mexico population. The sample sizes reported in the table are unweighted. Percentages calculated using the unweighted sample sizes will not be accurate.

Data Sources

Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey Data, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, together with New Mexico Department of Health, Injury and Behavioral Epidemiology Bureau.

Data Issues

  • County Estimates

    The BRFSS data have been weighted to be representative of the New Mexico health region populations. Had the data been weighted to be representative of each county population, results stratified by county would likely have been slightly different.
  • Denominator

    The denominator includes all survey respondents ages 18 years and older except those with missing, don't know and refused answers. If the query was limited to a particular sub-population-group, only those respondents are included in the denominator.
  • Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey (BRFSS)

    The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is an ongoing survey of adults about health-related behaviors, health conditions, and preventive services. Data are collected in all 50 states, D.C., and U.S. territories. The survey is conducted using scientific telephone survey methods for landline and cellular phones (with cellular since 2011). The landline phone portion of the survey excludes adults living in group quarters such as college dormitories, nursing homes, military barracks, and prisons. The cellular phone portion of the survey includes adult students living in college dormitories but excludes other group quarters. Beginning with 2011, the BRFSS updated its surveillance methods by adding in calls to cell phones and changing its weighting methods. These changes improve BRFSS' ability to take into account the increasing proportion of U.S. adults using only cellular telephones. Because of these changes, the data from years prior to 2011 are not directly comparable to data from 2011 and later. Please see the [[a href="/nmibis-view/docs/Query/BRFSS/BRFSS_fact_sheet_Aug2012.pdf BRFSS Method Change Factsheet]]. Responses have been weighted to reflect the New Mexico adult population by age, sex, ethnicity, geographic region, marital status, education level, home ownership and type of phone. The "missing" and "don't know" responses are not included when calculating a percentage.
