Mortality Query Measure Selection

Death/Mortality Data

The mortality data in this IBIS-Q query module have been derived from death certificates in participation with the National Vital Statistics System. Mortality data are maintained and provided by the New Mexico Department of Health, Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics. They include virtually all deaths of New Mexico residents, including deaths that happened outside the state.

      Crude Rates - Standard Query
      Deaths per 100,000 persons in the population. Table includes the crude death rate, upper and lower 95% confidence interval limits for the rate, number of deaths, and number in the population used to calculate the rate.

      3-Year Rolling Averages - Crude Death Rates (Overlapping 3-Year Groups)
      Rolling averages are used to "smooth" trend lines that would otherwise be unstable. Often, the population size will be too small to yield a smooth trend line. By combining multiple years, the data will be more stable. "Rolling averages" are overlapping, aggregated year groups. They are overlapped so that more data points may be displayed, and also so the line shows changes more gradually.
