About the dashboard

This dashboard can be used to explore transplant and donor trends and key statistics. This data visualization shows high-level data on transplants, deceased donors recovered, patients added to the waitlist and patients temporarily moved to inactive waitlist status*. It is updated daily. Find detailed and localized data through the preceding month in the OPTN website’s data section.

*A temporary inactivation means that the transplant program has determined that a candidate is temporarily unavailable or unsuitable for transplantation and should not receive organ offers. The transplant program may reactivate the candidate at any time.

This dashboard is updated monthly, typically during the third week of the month. You may experience short periods of temporary interruption during this time.
