Data Portal

Welcome to the New Mexico EPHT Data Portal. The NM EPHT website provides different types of data which ranges from highly textual "EPHT Topics" (contextual information about Health and Environment) down to access to numerical datasets. The data portal provides access to the more detailed information, charts, maps, and data about our EPHT Topics. The data portal provides:

Indicators and 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. 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, maps, and data values.

For more detailed information about Indicator Reports see the Indicator Reports Introduction page.

Queryable Public Datasets

"Queryable Datasets" provides access to public, deidentified datasets with user-defined data criteria. The resultant data have limited contextual information when compared to an indicator report but provides more flexibility when analyzing data. These datasets are public and do not contain sensitive, personal identifiable data values.

Queryable Secure Datasets

Some NM EPHT datasets can be queried in such a way that sensitive, small population data results are possible. Users wishing to access these datasets must apply for and receive authorization before access is granted. See the Request Access to Secure Datasets page for more information about secure datasets.


Metadata are data about NM EPHT-acquired data and datasets. Once obtained, NM EPHT datasets are critically examined to fully characterize and describe the data elements, including the content, quality, and geographic and temporal extent. Exploring metadata is a way to discover data and learn about the NM EPHT datasets, specifically.

For more information about NM EPHT Metadata see the Metadata Introduction page.


You can also set up a MyEPHT account, which allows you to save preferences custom query definitions for future reference, or share them with others.
