7                Social determinants of health (SDH) are conditions in the environments in which people live that affect a
8                wide range of health outcomes and risks. For more information on the social determinants of health please

13                In these queries users are able to analyze birth and death data by selected measures that are considered social
14                determinants of health. The measures in these queries consist of census-tract-level estimates from the American
15                Community Survey (ACS) 5-year samples. The measures were linked by census tract and year to geocoded birth and
16                death data to assign the census tract SDH value to each individual data record. The result is an ecological
17                analysis that allows users to understand the effects that the SDH may have on health outcomes in New Mexico.

20                The ACS data represent a 5-year period, whereas the birth and death data are reported by single year. To account
21                for that difference, the 5-year ACS estimates were linked to the birth and death datasets for the mid-year of the
22                ACS survey period. For instance, the 2010-2016 ACS estimate was linked to the 2012 birth data because 2012 is the
23                middle year of the 2010-2016 ACS period. The 2012-2016 ACS estimates were also linked to the 2015 and 2016 birth
24                data because mid-year ACS data for those years (5-year ACS estimates for 2013-2017 and 2014-2018) were not yet
25                available. This methodology, including the reasoning behind our six poverty cutoff categories, was adapted from
26                methodology developed by the CSTE that may be found in the [
27                CSTE Webinar Library].

30                The SDH currently allow users to look at individual level birth and death data by an SDH measure for the individual's
31                census tract. It is important to note that this is an ecological analysis. As such, these queries do not allow users
32                to draw conclusions about relationships between individual characteristics and individual outcomes. They represent
33                individual characteristics' association with census tract level demographic characteristics.
