        • abstract: The county-level daily ozone dataset is created using data downloaded from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (http://aqsdr1.epa.gov/aqsweb/aqstmp/airdata/download_files.html). These data were originally provided to EPA by the state of New Mexico air program, as required under the Clean Air Act. Data are only provided for counties with monitors that pass the completeness criterion. Data completeness for each monitor was based on the availability of samples for at least 75% of the year. If data for a county do not meet this completeness test, then no Ozone estimate is made for a county; these missing values are designated as "Insufficient Data". For counties without ozone monitors, missing values are designated as "Data Not Available". The daily ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) was 0.075 parts per million (ppm) (the standard changed to 0.07 effective December 28, 2015). EPA established this 8-hour standard for ozone of 0.075 ppm in 2008. The previous 8-hour standard was set at 0.08 ppm in 1997. The dataset contains, for each county with complete monitoring data: the year , state and county FIPS code (individually and combined), county name, county population, number of days above ozone standard (federal NAAQS of 0.075 ppm) and the person-days above the ozone standard (see above). The dataset was created using guidelines provided in the CDC NCDM Recommendations (version 3.0). The indicator documentation is available from CDC's Environmental Public Health Tracking Network.
        • purpose: This dataset contains calculated measures for air quality for use on the NM public portal. The dataset is intended for use on the NM EPHT portal for displays describing ozone-related air quality across NM by county with ozone monitors. The number of days in which the daily maximum 8-hour average ozone concentration exceeds a standard provides an indication of short-term spikes in ozone concentrations. This may not provide information of how many days per year people may be exposed to unhealthy levels of ozone. These data are not intended for performing health assessments or otherwise being directly related or linked to health data.

      • complete: The air quality data used in calculating the indicators and measures are tested to ensure that they are 75% complete during an area's ozone season. If data for a county do not achieve the 75% completeness test, then no ozone estimate is made for the county.

          • procdesc: NM EPHT data queries through nmtracking.org (NMTracking) result in query-specific data sets that are aggregated by geographic unit. These aggregated data are dynamically joined to boundary data sets for display in the NMTracking interactive map. Boundaries are for County and 2010 U.S. Census Tract. Please note that some data queries and displays might be available only to those with restricted-access permissions. Mapped results for the interactive data query include options for a background with an NM base map or shaded relief. Both background maps are served from the NM Resource Geographic Information System (NM RGIS, rgis.unm.edu) or other servers hosted at UNM Earth Data Analysis Center.
