Query Results for Cancer Incidence Indicators - Cancer Incidence Rates, Age-adjusted

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.

Query Criteria

Measure Description:Cancer incidence (all cancers) per 100,000 population (age-adjusted)
Year of Diagnosis Filter:
Data Grouped By:County of Residence

Data Notes

  • Rates are age-adjusted incidence rates for all cancers.
  • Measure Notes

    Rates have been age-adjusted using the direct method and the 2000 U.S. standard population.
  • NM-IBIS Map Guidance

    For guidance on NM-IBIS map categories, please visit the [[a href="./resource/MapChoroClasses.html" IBIS map guidance page]].
  • New Mexico Tumor Registry

    The cancer incidence data were provided by the New Mexico Tumor Registry (NMTR) for the entire resident population of New Mexico. The data were reported from New Mexico medical facilities including hospitals, clinics, physician offices, and pathology labs, as well as neighboring out-of-state facilities. NMTR routinely reviews cancer mortality data to ensure complete coverage of cancer incidence within New Mexico. Cancer cases were coded using International Classification of Diseases (ICD-O-3) codes.
  • U.S. Data

    Comparable data for the U.S. and other states may be found on the National Cancer Institute'S Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program website, [https://seer.cancer.gov/].

Data Sources

Data Issues

  • Calculation of Age-adjusted Rates

    The age-adjusted rates in this query module were directly adjusted using 19 five-year age groups, consistent with the National Cancer Institute's SEER program methods.
  • Cancer Incidence Dataset

    The New Mexico Tumor Registry (NMTR) cancer incidence datafile is not a closed database, which means that information on cancer cases may be updated for any given year. This may include addition or deletion of cases, as well as changes in patient or tumor characteristics. Hence, numbers on IBIS may change to reflect these updates when new years of data are added.
  • Cancer Incidence Population Data

    The source of the IBIS population estimates is the University of New Mexico Geospatial and Population Studies (GPS) program. Cancer incidence rates computed in IBIS may vary slightly from corresponding rates computed from other online resources, which generally rely on population estimates provided by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER). You can learn about SEER population estimates from: [http://seer.cancer.gov/popdata/methods.html].
  • NM-IBIS Population Data

    Population estimates for previous years are occasionally revised as new information becomes available. When publishing trend data, always be sure that your rates for earlier years match current rates on NM-IBIS that have been calculated with the most up-to-date population estimates.
  • New Mexico Population Estimates

    All population estimates apply to July 1 of the selected year. These estimates are considered the most accurate estimates for the state of New Mexico and should match those found on the University of New Mexico Geospatial and Population Studies website. Estimates include decimal fractions. Census tract population estimates were summed to produce County and Small Area population estimates. Population estimate totals may vary due to rounding. Population estimates for previous years are occasionally revised as new information becomes available. When publishing trend data, always be sure that your rates for earlier years match current rates on NM-IBIS that have been calculated with the most up-to-date population estimates.
  • New Mexico Tumor Registry

    In agreement with the New Mexico Tumor Registry, the count of cancer cases is suppressed for any given county if the count is between one and five to ensure confidentiality.
