Transplant Wait List Watch, #1 for 2013

Since I ran across a message board post from someone perpetuating the idea that the wait list is growing exponentially, I thought it’d be a good time to peruse the active wait list numbers and see how they’ve continued to fare.

 

Prior check-ins:

November 9, 2012: 74,558

August 11, 2012: 73,104

June 24, 2012: 73,146

May 11, 2012: 73,141

January 30, 2012: 72,428

December 29, 2011: 72,656

November 28, 2011: 72,625

October 18, 2011: 72,642

August 23, 2011: 72,318

Aug 4, 2011: 72,400

July 20, 2011: 72,345

July 10, 2011: 72,360

July 5, 2011: 72,319

May 23, 2011: 72,298

May 11th: 72,244

April 29th: 72,330

 

Today, January 20, 2013: 74,352. 

 

Since April 29, 2011, the active wait list has risen exactly 2022 candidates, as defined by OPTN. That equates to a 2.8% increase.
