Age-specific Birth RateThe age-specific birth rate is the number of live births per 1,000 female population. The teen birth rate is considered an age-specific birth rate.
Statistical StabilityStatistical 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 [https://ibis.health.state.nm.us/resource/ReliabilityValidity.html].

New Mexico Birth Certificate DataBirth records are filed electronically by hospitals. Medical records staff use standard mother and facility worksheets and medical charts to complete the birth registration. Hospital training is provided by the Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics (BVRHS) and is based on the Vital Statistics Act and Regulations, BVRHS documentation, and handbooks produced by CDC's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). The electronic birth registration system has online edits and records are reviewed by BVRHS. Additionally, NCHS provides feedback to BVRHS on data quality. The state also provides feedback to the hospitals to improve data quality and contacts the hospital staff for clarification of missing, inconsistent or incorrect entries.
Changes to U.S. Standard Birth Certificate Caused Discontinuity in Data Over TimeBeginning with 2008 births, New Mexico implemented the 2003 U.S. standard birth certificate in alignment with the National Center for Health Statistics. As a result of national changes to question wording and format, some information is not comparable between the 1989 and 2003 birth certificate revisions. This information includes educational attainment, month and trimester prenatal care began, and tobacco use during pregnancy (and, for New Mexico, calculated gestation). In addition, initially, the transition to new questions may have resulted in more incomplete information. For education and prenatal care, differences between years prior to 2008 and births in 2008 and later years are largely related to changes in reporting rather than changes in educational attainment or prenatal care utilization. For more information, refer to New Mexico Selected Health Statistics [http://nmhealth.org/data/view/vital/560/ Annual Report, 2008], pages 136-139.
Population DataPopulation estimates for previous years are occasionally revised as new information becomes available. When publishing trend data, always be sure that your rates for earlier years match current rates on NM-IBIS that have been calculated with the most up-to-date population estimates.
Confidence Intervals for Zero ValuesFor rates where the count is zero, a numerator of "3" was used to calculate the confidence interval (per Lilienfeld and Stolley, __Foundations of Epidemiology__, 1994, p. 303).
