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.
