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.

Data Notes

  • Deaths of Despair

    Deaths of despair, also known as deaths from diseases of despair, include deaths from suicide, drug overdose and 100% alcohol-attributable causes. Note that deaths that are 100% attributable to alcohol do not include all alcohol-related deaths. For instance, motor vehicle crashes and liver cirrhosis are often, but not always, attributable to alcohol and are not included in this definition of "deaths of despair."
  • 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 and diagnoses, injury causes, and medical procedures for hospital and emergency department visits. The U.S. is currently using the 10th revision (ICD-10). For list of ICD codes used in NM-IBIS, please visit [https://ibis.doh.nm.gov/view/html/MortICDlists.htm].
  • New Mexico Residents

    Results include deaths of New Mexico residents, including those whose death occurred outside of New Mexico. Results do not include non-residents who died in New Mexico.
  • 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 data by selected measures that are considered social determinants of health. The measure in these queries consist of census-tract-level estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year sample. The measures were linked by census tract and year to geocoded birth and death data and the census tract value was assigned 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.

    When linking these data to our birth and death data, the five year ACS estimates were linked to the birth and death datasets for the mid-year ACS period. For instance, the 2009-2013 ACS estimate was linked to the 2011 birth data. Additionally, 2010-2014 ACS estimate was also linked to the 2013 birth data because 5-year 2011-2015 ACS percentages 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].

    These queries currently allow users to look at record level birth and death data by an SDH measure within a census tract. It is important to understand that as an ecological analysis, these queries do not allow users to draw conclusions about relationships between individual characteristics and individual outcomes.

Data Sources

Data Issues

  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Death Certificate Data

    Death certificate information is submitted electronically by funeral directors, who obtain demographic information from an informant, a close family member of the decedent. The NMDOH Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics (BVRHS) does annual trainings for funeral directors and local registrars and the death certificate information goes through extensive scrutiny for completeness and consistency. 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. 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.
  • 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.
