CKD-13.1 Data Details

Expand All

CKD-13.1 Increase the proportion of patients receiving a kidney transplant within 3 years of end-stage renal disease (ESRD)

About the Data: National

Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.

Data Source: 
United States Renal Data System
Changed Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
Yes
Measure: 
percent
Baseline (Year): 
18.3 (2004)
Target: 
20.1
Target-Setting Method: 
10 percent improvement
Numerator: 

Number of persons under age 70 years receiving a kidney transplant within three years of initiation of renal replacement therapy.

Denominator: 

Number of incident persons on renal replacement therapy under age 70 years.

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective: 
Retained from HP2010 objective
Data Collection Frequency: 
Annual
Methodology Notes: 

    Data on the number of persons on transplant waiting lists include data from the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network (OPTN) and the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS). Data include patients from 1991–2007 who are younger than 70 at ESRD certification. Patients are followed for three years, from ESRD certification until the first of death, transplant, or censoring at three years post-transplant. Percentages are calculated using the Kaplan-Meier methodology.

Revision History

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
In 2015, the original baseline was revised from 17.9 to 18.3 percent due to USRDS rates re-estimation. There is some lag in reporting new cases of ESRD. Therefore, each year’s Annual Data Report includes re-estimates of earlier year rates. For more information see the USRDS Annual Data Reports. The target was adjusted from 19.7 to 20.1 percent to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method.
