Query Builder for New Jersey Infant Death Data: Infant Mortality Rate

Overview

About this dataset

The data in this module come from death certificates that have been matched to the infant's birth certificate. Year, infant age, cause of death, and geographic area of residence are from the death certificate. All other variables are from the matched birth certificate for the infant.

How to build your query

The most current data year and all deaths are pre-selected in the steps below. If you do not want to choose different years or filter your results by any characteristics or cause of death, skip to the last STEP bar and select how you would like to display the results (i.e., which rows and columns you want in your data table) then click SUBMIT at the bottom left of the query builder steps to get your query result.

If you want to only see data for certain years, characteristics, or causes of death, follow the numbered steps below to narrow your query. When you are done filtering your query, open the last STEP bar to select which rows and columns you want in your data table. After that, click SUBMIT at the bottom left of the query builder steps to get your query result.
Step 1: Select year of death (2010)

Selecting years

Select a range of years. Use Ctrl to make multiple selections.

Year is year of death.
Select years.

Step 2: Select mother's age (All ages)

Select mother's age at time of infant's birth.

Step 3: Select mother's race and/or ethnicity (Race/ethnicity combined: All races/ethnicities)

Race and Ethnicity

Race and Hispanic ethnicity are collected separately on vital event certificates.

Therefore each record has both a race (White, Black, etc.) and an ethnicity (Hispanic or non-Hispanic) for the mother and data for race and ethnicity may be presented separately (Race or Hispanic origin) or combined (Race/Ethnicity).
Choose a coding scheme to use for race and ethnicity. Default is race/ethnicity combined, all races/ethnicities.

Mother's race/ethnicity
All races/ethnicities
White, non-Hispanic
Black, non-Hispanic
Hispanic (of any race)
Asian, non-Hispanic
Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, non-Hispanic
American Indian/Alaska Native, non-Hispanic
Other Single Race, non-Hispanic

Mother's Race

Race groups include both Hispanics and non-Hispanics.

Step 5: Select infant characteristics

Select the infant characteristics you would like to include in the analysis. The default is all characteristics.

Male

Birth Weight

Very Low Birth Weight: Live-born infants whose birth weight was less than 1500 grams (about 3.3 lbs.)

Low Birth Weight: Live-born infants whose birth weight was less than 2500 grams (about 5.5 lbs.)

Normal Birth Weight: Live-born infants whose birth weight was at least 2500 grams but less than 4,000 grams

High Birth Weight: Live-born infants whose birth weight was greater than 4,000 grams (about 8.8 lbs.)
Birthweight

Gestational Age

Gestational Age is the period of time a baby is carried in the uterus or the duration of the pregnancy, measured from the first day of the last menstrual period. Full-term gestation is between 37 and 42 weeks.
Gestational age

Size for Gestational Age

Small for gestational age (SGA) is a term used to describe a baby who is smaller than usual for the number of weeks of pregnancy. SGA babies usually have birthweights below the 10th percentile for babies of the same gestational age. This means that they weigh less than 90 percent of all other babies of the same gestational age.

Large for gestational age (LGA) is a term used to describe a baby who is larger than usual for the number of weeks of pregnancy. LGA babies usually have birthweights above the 90th percentile for babies of the same gestational age. This means that they weigh more than 90 percent of all other babies of the same gestational age.
Large or small for gestational age

Step 6: Select health services utilization characteristics

Select the health services utilization characteristics you want to include in your analysis. The default is all characteristics.

Prenatal Care Recommendations

It is recommended that pregnant women begin prenatal care during their first three months (first trimester) of pregnancy.
Prenatal care onset

Number of Prenatal Care Visits

ACOG recommends the following prenatal care visit schedule:

1 visit per month (every 4 weeks) until week 28

2 visits per month (every 2 to 3 weeks) from weeks 28 to 36

1 visit per week from week 36 until birth

Certain medical conditions in pregnancy may necessitate more visits.

Interpregnancy Interval

The interpregnancy interval is the time (in months) between the completion of one pregnancy resulting in a live-born infant and conception of the next pregnancy.
Interpregnancy interval (birth spacing)
Step 7: Select cause of death (NJDOH 10 Major Causes of Infant Death: All causes)

Cause of Death

There are a variety of predefined causes of death to choose from. If causes on the predefined lists do not meet your needs, you may enter your own ICD-10 codes by selecting "User-defined causes."
First choose a coding scheme to use for causes of death. Default is all causes.

NJDOH 10 major causes of infant death

NCHS Leading Causes of Death

The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has developed a uniform procedure for ranking causes of death. Using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) coding structure, 130 selected causes of infant death were consolidated from the entire ICD-10 coding structure. Of these 130 causes, a subset of 71 rankable causes were selected to denote the most frequently occurring causes of death among causes eligible for ranking. Use the help page link to the right with a yellow "?" for a listing.
NCHS 71 rankable causes of infant death
NCHS 130 selected causes of infant death

How to Specify ICD-10 Codes

Enter the codes with or without the decimal point. Use a hyphen to indicate a range of codes. Use a space or comma between codes.

Note that, for example, P23 includes all codes under P23 (congenital pneumonia), from P23.0 (Congenital pneumonia due to viral agent) to P23.9 (Congenital pneumonia, unspecified). Because the codes are alpha-numeric and not simply numeric, deaths coded simply P23_ [underscore added to show blank space] will not be included in a range from P23.0-P23.9 since P23_ is less than P23.0. P23-P24 would include all codes under P23 and P24.
User defined causes











Step 8: Select geographic area of residence at death (County of Residence: All counties)

Step 9: Select how to display the results

Use the drop down list options below to specify how to display the numerical data values on the query results page. If both a Row Values Grouped By and a Column Values Grouped By are specified, then a two dimensional table will be presented in the query results. Regardless of what is selected, a standard data list table will be presented as well as meta data that describes the data sources, data issues, and any data notes. Select the Chart Graphic Type option below if you want a chart graphic to be shown.
Specify how to display the numerical data values.
