Complete Health Indicator Report of New Mexico Population - Race/Ethnicity

Health Program Information

The data have been provided to DOH through a contract with the Geospatial and Population Studies (GPS) Program at the University of New Mexico. GPS Program estimates are considered the most accurate for New Mexico because they use local data (e.g., births, deaths, school enrollment). The GPS Program is the official source for population estimates for NM DOH analyses and reports. Their contract is generously supported by programs across the DOH.
