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
) 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:
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 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.
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
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.
