Complete Health Indicator Report of Smoking-Related Deaths

Definition

Smoking-related deaths are defined using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Smoking Attributable Mortality, Morbidity, and Economic Costs (SAMMEC) methodology. However, CDC's SAMMEC site reports age-adjusted rates based on the age 35+ population; whereas this report calculates age-adjusted rates for the entire population. As a result, the smoking-attributable mortality rates reported here are lower than those reported by the CDC's SAMMEC site.

Data Interpretation Issues

These tables are based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Smoking Attributable Mortality, Morbidity, and Economic Costs (SAMMEC) methodology. However, CDC's SAMMEC site reports age-adjusted rates based on the age 35+ population; whereas this report calculates age-adjusted rates for the entire population. As a result, the smoking-attributable mortality rates reported here are lower than those reported by the CDC's SAMMEC site.

Why Is This Important?

Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death. The five leading causes of smoking-related death in New Mexico are chronic airway obstruction, lung cancer, ischemic heart disease, other heart disease, and bronchitis/emphysema. Historically, New Mexico's rates for smoking-related causes such as lung cancer have been among the lowest in the nation. Nonetheless, a comparison of New Mexico's smoking-related death rates to its alcohol and drug-related death rates shows that the burden of death associated with smoking is still considerably greater than the burden associated with these other substances. This speaks to the public health importance of smoking prevention efforts, even in a state with low rates relative to the rest of the nation.

Smoking-Related Deaths by Age, Sex and Race/Ethnicity, New Mexico, 2012-2016

::chart - missing::
confidence limits

Smoking-related death rates increase sharply in the oldest age group (age 65+), consistent with the fact that smoking-related causes of death are mostly chronic conditions with a long development period. This is in contrast to alcohol- and drug-related deaths, both of which show a greater proportion of "premature" deaths (deaths before age 65+). Male rates are roughly 1.5 to 3 times female rates across all race/ethnic groups. Among males, Blacks have the highest rates followed by Whites, while among females Whites have the highest rates followed by Blacks.

Smoking-Related Deaths by County and Race/Ethnicity, New Mexico, 2012-2016

::chart - missing::
confidence limits

The counties with the highest rates and relatively heavy burdens of smoking-related death (i.e., 20 or more deaths a year) are Sierra, Quay, Torrance, Chaves, and Lea counties. The high rates in most of these counties (and in the state overall) are driven by high rates among Whites. However, there are notably elevated rates among Hispanics in Quay and Sierra counties; and a substantial burden of smoking-related death among Hispanics in several other counties (e.g., Bernalillo, Dona Ana, Santa Fe). The high rates of smoking-related death among Blacks in Curry and Lea counties are also notable. The smoking-related death rates among the American Indian and Asian/Pacific Islander population are relatively low.
