Query Results for Mortality Indicators - Influenza and Pneumonia Deaths per 100,000 Population (Age-adjusted)

Single Years Filter: 2016, 2017, 2018
Data Grouped By:Decedent's County of Residence

**The count or rate in certain cells of the table has been suppressed either because 1) the observed number of events is very small and not appropriate for publication, or 2) it could be used to calculate the number in a cell that has been suppressed. For survey queries, percentages calculated from fewer than 50 survey responses are suppressed.
Rates are age-adjusted influenza and pneumonia death rates, ICD-10 codes: J09-J18.

New Mexico Residents

Results include deaths of New Mexico residents, including those whose death occurred outside of New Mexico. Results do not include non-residents who died in New Mexico.

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 [https://ibis.health.state.nm.us/resource/ReliabilityValidity.html].

ICD-Codes

ICD Stands for International Classification of Diseases. It is a coding system maintained by the World Health Organization and the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics used to classify causes of death and diagnoses, injury causes, and medical procedures for hospital and emergency department visits. The U.S. is currently using the 10th revision (ICD-10). For list of ICD codes used in NM-IBIS, please visit [https://ibis.health.state.nm.us/view/html/MortICDlists.htm].

Population Estimates

All population estimates apply to July 1 of the selected year. Estimates include decimal fractions. The sum of population subgroup estimates may not exactly equal the overall state population estimate due to rounding error.

Age-adjusted Rates

Data have been directly age-adjusted to the U.S. 2000 standard population. NM-IBIS calculated this age-adjusted rate using the direct method. If there were fewer than 25 cases in the analysis, the indirect method of age-adjustment should be used. For more information on age-adjustment, please visit [https://ibis.health.state.nm.us/resource/AARate.html].

Death Certificate Data

Death certificates in New Mexico are required to be filed by funeral directors. Funeral directors obtain demographic information from an informant, a close family member of the decedent. The cause of death is certified by the decedent's physician or the physician that attended the death. Accidental and suspicious deaths are certified by the Office of the Medical Investigator. Death certificate data go through extensive edits for completeness and consistency. The DOH Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics (BVRHS) does annual trainings for funeral directors and local registrars.

When death certificates are received the cause of death literals are keyed into software locally by the BVRHS, then shipped to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) where they are machine coded into ICD-10 cause-of-death codes. NCHS returns the ICD-10 codes to BVRHS where the death records are updated.

Population Data

Population 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 Values

For 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).
