        • abstract: This dataset contains county-level records for deaths of New Mexico residents due to carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning (unintentional fire-related, unintentional non-fire related, and unknown intent)that occurred between 2001 and 2018. The dataset was generated using information from the New Mexico Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics (NM-VRHS)Linked Multiple Cause of Death file. The dataset supports calculation of of the CO poisoning mortality measures among New Mexico residents. Measures include 1) the number of deaths from CO poisoning, 2) crude rate of death from CO poisoning, and 3) age-adjusted rate of death from CO poisoning (adjusted by the direct method to the 2000 US standard population. All rates are expressed per 100,000 persons. CO poisoning deaths and mortality are presented by county, for 2001-2018.
        • purpose: Dataset was created to provide data for the New Mexico Environmental Public Health Tracking Network in order to monitor spatial and temporal variation in the annual mortality due to CO poisoning consistent with Nationally Consistent Data and Measures (NCDMs).
        • supplinf: The New Mexico Linked Multiple Cause of Death data are derived from items reported on the death certificate and coded as underlying or contributing cause of death. DATA SOURCE(S): 1)Information is gathered from the Medical Certification section of NM Death Certificate; 2)Traditionally, BVRHS nosologists trained by CDC, NCHS, (based on WHO guidelines) manually assigns underlying cause of death based on NCHS linkage rules/logic – what condition gives rise to what condition. NM nosologists have not received multiple cause training; 3) Nosologist assigns a single underlying cause of death code based on the International Classification of Disease (ICD) categories, which since 1999 has been based on the Tenth Revision ICD; 4) The underlying cause of death has historically been the basis of national and NM vital statistic cause of death compilation and presentation; 5)Since about 1996 NM has partially implemented the national electronic system for automated coding of the underlying cause of death and capture of the various (multiple) conditions listed in the medical certification of death as contributory to the demise of the decedent. The software is commonly referred to as SuperMICAR. AUTOMATED CAUSE OF DEATH CLASSIFICATION: 1)The national automated cause of death classification system is made up of the following components: MICAR with its enhancement called SuperMICAR, ACME and Transax; 2)MICAR (Mortality Medical Indexing Classification And Retrieval) generates the multiple cause ICD codes from literal information entered from the death certificate. SuperMICAR is an enhancement to facilitate and simplify the data entry of information from the death certificate, with the entry screens matching the cause of death section of the standard certificate;3) ACME (Automated Classification of Medical Entities) determines an underlying cause of death; 4)Transax (Translation of Axis) basically generates the output file which contains the ACME generated underlying cause of death and the multiple causes of death codes in two contexts: entity axis codes and record axis codes; 5) Entity axis codes reflect each condition entered on the death certificate and the location as to where that condition is reported on the certification section of the death record. Record axis codes incorporate relationships and are the codes used for most multiple cause of death analysis; 6) New Mexico has only run the SuperMicar component since the requirement to run the other components is to have a nosologist trained in multiple cause of death on staff, which NM does not; 7) After entry of the literals into SuperMicar, NM sends the file to NCHS for the remainder of the processing and NCHS returns a Transax file to the state. The records are sent in batches through the year and sometimes there is a lengthy wait for a batch to be processed and a Transax file returned. 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 deaths occurring in-state as well as deaths of NM residents that occur out-of-state. The death coding system is ICD-10. The following International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, code T58 was used to identify deaths due to CO poisoning.

      • complete: Mortality data are based on items reported on the death certificate and include demographic, geographic, injury, medical, and cause-of-death information on the decedent. In most cases, funeral directors work with an informant for the decedent (usually a relative or friend) to collect demographic and geographic information. The medical and cause-of-death section of the death certificate is completed by the attending physician or the Office of the Medical Investigator (OMI). Except for deaths occurring on tribal or military lands, the OMI has jurisdiction over all unexpected and unattended deaths in New Mexico. When deaths to New Mexico residents occur out of state, information from the death certificate is transmitted to NM-VRHS for statistical reporting.

          • 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. 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.

        • eaover: This dataset contains the following fields (defined in the detailed citation below): Carbon monoxide poisoning deaths (CO), Unintentional non-fire related flag, Unintentional fire related flag, Unknown (or undetermined) intention flag, Age at death, Sex, Cause of death (COD), Multiple cause of death codes 1-12, Manner, Countycode, Agepop, Age group 4, Year and Month of Death.
        • eadetcit: The variable CO is a number, which represents carbon monoxide poisoning (ICD-10 T58) if found in the multiple cause fields (1 for first position, 2 for any other of the 11 additional fields and 0 if not found). Unintentional non-fire related flag is also code 0, 1 and 2 in the same manner as CO for the ICD-10 values X47. Unintentional fire related flag reflects values X00-X09 and Unknown (undetermined) captures information from values Y10-Y34. The variable Agepop provides age categories used in the standard age age-adjusting groupings; ages 0, 1-4, 5-14, 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65-74, 75-84 and 85+ years. The variable Agegrp4 provide grouping of ages 1-14, 15-44, 45-64 and 65 and older. Sex is coded 1 for males, 2 for females and 9 for unknown or unreported. COD, underlying cause of death, and the multiple cause of death fields are character values with length four and an implied decimal between the third and fourth position. New Mexico counties are two digit FIPS codes in the field CountyCode. Year shows year of death 2001-2014 and month show numeric values 1-12.
