When there is a small number of health events in a small population, as is seen in some county-level data, problems with statistical instability may occur. An unstable count or rate may fluctuate widely across time periods. An unstable count or rate should be interpreted with caution and should not be used to predict outcomes. For more information on statistical stability, visit the NM-IBIS Reliability & Validity page, https://ibis.health.state.nm.us/resource/ReliabilityValidity.html.
Information about stability for specific county-level data is available by request.
