Birth and Death Queries by Social Determinants of Health Configuration Selection
Social Determinants of Health QueriesThis query allows users to stratify birth outcomes by census tract level measures of the social determinants of health. The use of socio-demographic variables for routine analysis of public health data is currently recommended by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists. For more information on the methods used to construct these variables, please see the Census Tract-Level Poverty presentations on the CSTE Webinar Library at [http://www.cste.org/?page=WebinarLibrary].
Getting StartedClick on a blue bar to open and close selections to see a list of measures available.
- Counts - Number of Births
Birth CountCount of all live births in a given population and time period.
- Crude Birth Rate
Birth RateBirth rate is the number of live births per 1,000 persons in the population.
- Age-specific Birth Rate
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.
- Teen Births, Girls Age 15-19
Prenatal Care RecommendationsIt is recommended that pregnant women begin prenatal care during their first three months (first trimester) of pregnancy.
Birth WeightVery Low Birth Weight: Live-born infants whose birth weight was less than 1500 grams (about 3.3 lbs.)
Low Birth Weight: Live-born infants whose birth weight was at least 1500 grams but less than 2500 grams (about 5.5 lbs.)
Normal Birth Weight: Live-born infants whose birth weight was at least 2500 grams but less than 4,000 grams
High Birth Weight: Live-born infants whose birth weight was 4,000 or more grams (about 8.8 lbs.)
Preterm BirthsA Preterm birth is a birth that occurs before the 37th week of gestation.
CountThis module returns the number of deaths.
- Crude Rates
Crude RateThis module returns the number of deaths, the number in the population, the crude death rate (deaths per 100,000 persons), and the upper and lower 95% confidence interval limits for the rate.
- Age-adjusted Rates
Age-Adjusted RatesThis module returns the number of deaths, the number in the population, the age-adjusted death rate (deaths per 100,000 persons, age-standardized to the U.S. 2000 population), and the upper and lower 95% confidence interval limits for the rate.
- Average Age at Time of Death
Average Age at Time of DeathThis module returns the average age at death. You can filter or group the data by cause of death, year, age, sex, and geographic area.
Life ExpectancyThese queries return average life expectancy for the population selected. For information on life expectancy calculation, please visit the NM-IBIS Life Expectancy page.
YPLLThis query returns the Years of Potential Life Lost (YPLL) for the selected population and condition(s). "Years of Potential Life Lost" is calculated as 75 minus a person's age at time of death.
