      • descript:
        • abstract: This data set supports calculation of the percent ("incidence") of Low Birthweight (LBW) Term Singleton Births, which is the number of live born singleton infants born at term with a birthweight of less than 2,500 grams per 100 live term singleton births to resident mothers in a given time period. The LBW measure is presented by county for years 1990-2014.
        • purpose: Dataset was created to allow public access to annual percentages of LBW Term Singleton Births for examination of time trends and patterns. Low birthweight infants are at a greater risk than normal weight infants of early death. This measure can be used to track the perinatal health in New Mexico regions and counties. Baseline data can be used to monitor changes or trends over time. This measure can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of existing and new prevention programs.
        • supplinf: The live birth data are derived from items reported on the birth certificate. New Mexico began systematic record keeping of birth events in 1929. The New Mexico Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics (NM-VRHS) maintains the data for issuance and for statistical reporting. Data are collected on all births occurring in-state as well as births to NM residents that occur out-of-state. On July 1, 2007, New Mexico began using a new web-based electronic birth registration system (the Database Application for Vital Events). Births occurring prior to July 2007 were recorded in the previous system (referred to as LifeSpan). Geocoding of live birth data began with data collected in 1990.

      • accconst: Restricted (secure) data will only be released to external users after the New Mexico EPHT Program distributor AND the data steward, the New New Mexico Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics (NM-VRHS), has reviewed and authorized the request. Restricted (secure) data must be requested on the standard NM-VRHS Request Form and the signed Request Form submitted to NM-VRHS via FAX at (505) 827-1751, ATTN. Epidemiology Section. To access documentation describing the data elements of the underlying birth data, inquiries may be made to vrhs.data@state.nm.us.
      • useconst: This information is provided by the New Mexico Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics of the Emergency and Response Division, New Mexico Department of Health. Efforts have been made to assure the accuracy of the data. Birth records are filed electronically by hospitals. Medical records staff use standard mother and facility worksheets and medical charts to complete the birth registration. Hospital training is provided by NM-VRHS and is based on the Vital Statistics Act and Regulations, NM-VRHS documentation, and handbooks produced by CDC's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). The electronic birth registration system has online edits and records are reviewed by NM-VRHS. Additionally, NCHS provides feedback to NM-VRHS on data quality. The state also provides feedback to the hospitals to improve data quality and contacts hospital staff for clarification of missing, inconsistent or incorrect entries However, no responsibility is assumed by the NM Department of Health NM-VRHS related to materials or how it is represented by those who access this information. Data requests that would provide cell counts under 5 will not be permitted as this would violate minimum requirements for confidentiality and privacy. Further, interjurisdictional exchange agreements between NM-VRHS and other states prevent the distribution of out-of-state records that specifically identify jurisdictions other than New Mexico. All users must read and fully comprehend metadata prior to data use. Data may only be used for the purposes the Requestor specifies in the standard NM-VRHS Request Form.

      • complete: In January of 2008, NM-VRHS began electronic birth registration using the new (2003) U.S. Standard Birth Certificate. Substantially new information is collected on the new certificate in addition to most of the fields collected in prior years. In the 2008 and 2009 data collection 25% and 13% of the records respectively had unknown Initiation of Prenatal Care Dates due to changes in how questions were framed. This impacted data completeness in prenatal care calculations derived from this information including: Trimester prenatal care began and the Level of Prenatal Care Indices (Kotelcheck and Kessner).
      • lineage:
        • procstep:
          • procdesc: Data set was extracted from annual NM-VRHS Live Birth data set based on attributes defined by the New Mexico EPHT Program. Dataset developed per the instructions found in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Recommendations for Nationally Consistent Data and Measures within the Environmental Public Health Tracking Newtwork, version 1.3 (http://ephtracking.cdc/gov/docs/CDC_NCDM_Pt1_1.3.pdf).

        • procstep:
          • 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, Census Tract, and Small Areas and are created using U.S. Census 2010 boundary data. The Small Areas data set consists of combined Census tracts and was developed at the NM Department of Health. New Mexico Small Areas are 109 geographic areas across the state with population size that is just large enough to calculate rates for selected health events (e.g., asthma mortality, female breast cancer incidence). Most (95%) New Mexico small-area population sizes range from 9,000 to 30,000 persons. Some counties have multiple small areas (e.g., Bernalillo County has 34 small areas within its boundaries). In other cases, whole counties (e.g., Harding, Quay, and DeBaca) are combined to create a single small area. Please note that some data queries and displays might be available only to those with restricted-access permissions. NMTracking maps display a background with a New Mexico base map option. The background map is served from OpenStreetMap contributors (http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright).
