Query System Updates

New and updated IBIS query modules:

  • New Mexico Trauma Registry data from 2005-2015 were added to the NM-IBIS query system. The Trauma Registry Query Module provides data on serious injuries reported by participating New Mexico hospitals and emergency departments. Data can be viewed by counties and health regions of residence or injury occurrence, as well as patient characteristics (age, sex, and race) and other characteristics of the encounter, such as type of injury, method of pre-hospital transport and primary payer. (May 2017)
  • Population Density calculations for counties, small areas and census tracts were added to the NM-IBIS Population Estimates query module. The Population Estimates query module provides population estimates for years 1990-2015. (May 2017)
  • 2011-2015 American Community Survey (ACS) data were added to the NM-IBIS ACS Query module. The American Community Survey Query Module provides 5-year estimates for New Mexico counties, census tracts and 108 Small Areas. Measures include demographic characteristics such as median income, poverty, employment, disability, veteran status, presence of children in the household and prevalence of English language proficiency. Data are provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. (Jan 2017)
  • 2014 cancer incidence data were added to the NM-IBIS Cancer Incidence Data Query module. The Cancer Incidence Query Module now includes data from 199,550 New Mexico Tumor Registry records from years 1990-2014. The Tumor Registry data are maintained by the University of New Mexico Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results Program. (Dec 2016)
  • 2015 death data were added to the NM-IBIS Death Data Query module. The Mortality Query Module now includes data from 252,395 death certificates from years 1999-2015. The death certificate data are maintained by the New Mexico Department of Health, Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics. (Sep 2016)
  • Addition of the 2015 death data to NM-IBIS also populated the Infant Mortality Query module. The Infant Mortality Query Module now includes data from 2,635 infant deaths from years 1999-2015. The death certificate data are maintained by the New Mexico Department of Health, Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics. (Sep 2016)
  • 2015 birth data were added to the NM-IBIS Birth Data Query module. The Birth Query Module now includes data from 737,219 birth certificates from years 1990-2015. The birth certificate data are maintained by the New Mexico Department of Health, Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics. (Oct 2016)
  • 2015 population estimates data were added to the NM-IBIS Population Estimates Query module. The Population Estimates Query Module now includes estimates for years 1990-2015, 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. PLEASE NOTE: In addition to providing estimates for 2015, adjustments were made to population estimates for years 2010-2014. These new estimates were applied as population denominators for calculating rates in all NM-IBIS query modules at 3:54PM on October 12th. This change to population estimates will result in changes to any rates calculated for 2010-2014 that you may have previously run. You will need to re-run any trend data using the new population estimates.(Oct 2016)
  • 2015 data were added to the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Query Module. The BRFSS Query Module now includes data from 90,403 adult survey interviews conducted from 2004 through 2015. The IBIS BRFSS data are maintained by the New Mexico Department of Health, Injury and Behavioral Epidemiology Bureau, Survey Unit. PLEASE NOTE: The age groupings used for BRFSS in direct age-adjustment were changed to conform with those used in Healthy People 2020. The new method should produce very similar age-adjusted rates, but you should expect to see small differences. (Sep 2016)
