Query Builder for Infant Mortality - Infant Mortality Count

Overview

The mortality data in this IBIS-Q query module have been derived from death certificates in participation with the National Vital Statistics System, and 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, regardless of where the death occurred. The causes of death were coded using International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes. The population data in this IBIS-Q query module were produced by the University of New Mexico Bureau of Business and Economic Research and are considered the most accurate available for New Mexico.

Infant mortality is defined as the death of an infant under one year of age. Neonatal mortality is the death of an infant age 0 to 27 days, and postneonatal mortality, an infant age 28 to 364 days. The Infant Mortality Rate is most often calculated as infant deaths in a given year per 1,000 live births in the same year (death period method). This NM-IBIS query module uses the "death period" method. Infant mortality may also be calculated as deaths of infants born in a given year per 1,000 infants born in that year. That method of calculating infant mortality is called the birth cohort method.

Getting Started

* Follow the steps to FILTER the data to a subpopulation (or leave the data unfiltered for statewide results), AND to select how to CLASSIFY variables, such as age and geography, that you want to use in the last step. * Use the last step, "How to display the data," to choose HOW TO GROUP your results and to make map and graph choices.
* When you are done selecting your query criteria, click "Submit" to get your query result.
  • Select causes of death to filter the dataset (if desired). Default is all causes of infant mortality.


  • Select geographic area(s) (infant's residence). (Default is all New Mexico counties.)

  • What year grouping do you want to select? Default is single years, most recent year.









  • Select the infant characteristics you would like to include in the analysis. The default is all characteristics.

    • Would you like to include only males or only females in the results? Default includes all data records.

    • Would you like to filter the dataset to one or more race/ethncity? Default includes all data records.
