Donation and Transplant System Explorer
About this Application
This application aims to allow the user to explore various trends in the
donation and transplantation system in the United States. The user can select
various metrics to be plotted over time, with stratifications available for
organ types and specific subgroups of interest. Special attention is drawn to
the dates of allocation policy changes and the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc., please reach out to us by
About the Figure
The figure below provides a time trend for the chosen metric.
The trend is calculated using a backward-looking rolling window
(ie, on each calendar day, all data from the past 30, 90, or 365 days are used to calculate the value of the metric on that day).
Relevant changes in organ allocation policy and the onset of the
COVID-19 pandemic are defined by vertical lines. All trends are
raw/unadjusted. Any apparent effect of a policy change or the
pandemic will likely warrant further study to better explain the
likely cause. Data in the most recent days (the right end of the
plot) are subject to change and should be interpreted cautiously.
