NM EPHT Indicator Reports

NM EPHT indicators are numeric measures of the state or condition of the environment and/or population health as a result of exposures to the environment or other factors that we want to track. They help the NM EPHT Program monitor trends, compare situations, and better understand the link between environment and health. They also help environmental health community understand where we are, where we are going and how far we are from our goals.

NM EPHT indicators are based on recognized or anticipated/potential relationships between environmental exposures (e.g., ozone in outdoor air) and health outcomes (e.g., asthma). They are assessed through direct measures ( e.g., number of emergency visits for asthma) or indirect measures (e.g., levels of ozone in outdoor air as a measures of possible human exposure to ozone) that describe health or factors associated with health (e.g., environmental ozone or population age) in a defined/specified population. They were developed in collaboration with national and the state environmental health partners.

Indicator Reports provide online numeric data combined with public health context (such as why it is important and what is being done to improve it) for environmental factors (e.g., levels of ozone as a way of gauging air quality) or health outcomes (e.g., emergency department visits for asthma) potentially related to those environmental factors along with charts and data values.
