Data and the Data Bank

The Data Bank is a specialized reference service of BBER, staffed with experts in accessing and explaining New Mexico socio-economic data. The Data Bank staff post data tables, area profiles, and maps to this site that are generally re-compiled from other sources, along with selected BBER research publications and presentations.

BBER’s Data Bank also maintains a research library, with a collection of books, hard copy reports, journals, CD-ROMs, sheet maps, and microfiche on New Mexico's demographics and economy. The Data Bank is open to the public; we are located on the UNM main campus at 1919 Las Lomas NE, directly across from Parish Library. Our telephone number is (505) 277-6626. Here are our hours, and a map to help you find us. The Data Bank collection can be searched through LIBROS, UNM’s online catalog. This page links to the LIBROS portal for Departmental Libraries, including BBER’s collection – you can also do an Advanced Search and limit your results specifically to “UNM BBER-Data Bank” items.

Data tables and intermediate menu pages may also provide links to related databases that reside on other web sites. In general, the tabulations on our web site cover a variety of economic indicators and population characteristics, and are available for the state as a whole and New Mexico's counties, along with selected tabulations for cities, metro areas, tribal lands, and census tracts. Follow the Data Links to the left to access data posted on this site.

If the socioeconomic data you are seeking are not available on this site, you may want to contact our Data Bank at dbinfo@unm.edu. For data requests that are limited in scope, information is often given without charge. Fee-based services are also available.

BBER, via the Data Bank, is formally associated with the U.S. Census Bureau through the State Data Center/Business and Industry Data Center (SDC/BIDC) Program. The SDC/BIDC program members disseminate Census Bureau information, provide technical assistance and create "value-added" products from the data provided. BBER is a coordinator in the New Mexico network.
