Weighted Survey Data

The percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the sample so that the results better represent the New Mexico population. The sample sizes reported in the table are unweighted. Percentages calculated using the unweighted sample sizes will not be accurate.

Statistical Stability

Statistical stability, reported in the data table, is based on a statistic called the "Relative Standard Error," or RSE, which is the standard error expressed as a proportion of the point estimate (e.g., 30% of the point estimate). The following conventions are used here to interpret the RSE. * A dash (-) means that the relative standard error (RSE) is below 0.30 and the count or rate may be considered stable. * "Unstable" is displayed when the RSE is 0.30-0.50. An unstable count or rate may fluctuate widely across time periods due to random variation (chance). * "Very Unstable" is displayed when the RSE is greater than 0.50. A very unstable count or rate should not be used to inform decisions. You may combine years or otherwise increase the population size used in the query to achieve a more stable count or rate. Problems with statistical instability typically occur when there is a small number of health events in a small population. For more information on statistical stability, visit the NM-IBIS Reliability & Validity page [].

YRRS Survey Sample

The YRRS survey sample has different components, designed for tabulating survey results for different New Mexico geographic levels. When selecting the geographic area, "Statewide, New Mexico," the results are generated from a sample that was designed for tabulating results for New Mexico, overall. Results tabulated from this survey sample will match data reported by CDC-DASH on its website (www.cdc.healthyyouty/yrbs) and in any CDC publications. When selecting any other geographic area, results are generated from a separate and larger sample designed to product estimates for substate areas. [[br]]
