Query System Updates

New and updated IBIS query modules:

  • The Cancer Incidence query module was updated with 2016 cancer incidence data. The cancer incidence query module now queries 219,638 records of cancer incidence from the New Mexico Tumor Registry at UNM.
  • New Mexico state legislative districts (senate and house) were added as geographies to the American Community Survey (ACS) query module. The state senate and house districts are now two of the seven geographies that can be used to query the 86 different demographic measures from the ACS.
  • A cause of death selection for "Deaths of Despair" (deaths from suicide, drug overdose and 100% alcohol-attributable causes) has been added to the NM-IBIS Mortality query module.
  • 2013-2017 data were added to the NM-IBIS American Community Survey Query module. The queries were updated to the latest (2013-2017) 5-year estimates for counties, health regions, New Mexico small areas, census tracts and school districts. (Dec 2018)
  • 2017 population estimates data were added to the NM-IBIS Population Estimates Query module. The Population Estimates Query Module now includes estimates for years 1990-2017, by year, sex, age, race and Hispanic ethnicity for New Mexico counties, small areas, and 2010 census tract geographies. The population estimates data are provided to the New Mexico Department of Health through a contract with the UNM, Geospatial and Population Studies (GPS) Program. This year, the population counts have been re-estimated going back to 2010. The new population estimates will cause NM-IBIS to produce rates for the 2010-2017 period that may be slightly different from rates calculated by NM-IBIS prior to 5:00 PM, 8/24/2018. Any differences are expected to be very small.(Aug 2018)
  • 2017 death data were added to the NM-IBIS Death Data Query module. The Mortality Query Module now includes data from 308,832 death certificates from years 1999-2017. The death certificate data are maintained by the New Mexico Department of Health, Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics. (Aug 2018)
  • 2017 birth data were added to the NM-IBIS Birth Data Query module. The Birth Query Module now includes data from 786,361 birth certificates from years 1990-2017. The birth certificate data are maintained by the New Mexico Department of Health, Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics. (Aug 2018)
