Data Reporting Assessment (Learn more about data quality assessments)

Last updated

When New Mexico reports no data, several days of data, or unusual data (such as decreases in values that should increase), our volunteers note it here on the date the anomaly occurred. We also note here changes in our own methodology that affect the data.

As of March 5, 2021, New Mexico's totalTestResults are drawn directly from totalTestsViral instead of calculated via positive+negative.

On March 1, 2021, we backfilled Total PCR tests (specimens) in New Mexico from April 10, 2020 through May 11, 2020 using a query from New Mexico's site. On March 5, 2021, we backfilled Total PCR tests (specimens) from March 7, 2020 through April 10, 2020 from screenshots of New Mexico's dashboard. We also cleared Negative (People or cases) after April 6, 2020 and we cleared the history of New Mexico's Negative (people or cases). The number previously mixed units and is no longer needed since totalTestResults are no longer calculated via positive+negative.

On January 15, 2021, New Mexico’s Total PCR tests (specimens) decreased by approximately 13,000 without explanation.

On November 18, 2020, we shifted the entire time series of New Mexico metrics by one day to match the date that the state reports on its dashboard.
