Transplant Wait List Watch 2014

Yeah, it’s been a hot minute since I did one of these, but a recent conversation motivated me.

 

Active wait list candidates today, September 21, 2014: 79,127. 

That’s a 9.4% increase since April 29, 2011.

 

BTW, there’s 108,989 total kidney wait list registrations (active and inactive). 16,054 (14.7%) have had a prior kidney transplant. Meanwhile, there are 101,244 candidates and 14,493 (14.3%) have had a prior kidney transplant.

This means the kidney wait list contains 7745 multiple listings, aka folks listed at multiple centers. Think Steve Jobs.
