Organs and Tissue Donor Registry

$179 / year

This dataset contains information regarding the number of enrollments by population in the New York State Donate Life Registry for 2016. The database is used by donation professionals to determine a person donation status at the time of their death.


More than 10,000 New Yorkers are on waiting lists as the need for organ donations far exceeds the supply. One person who donates organs (hearts, lungs, liver, kidneys, pancreas and intestines) can save up to eight lives, while a tissue donor (corneas, bone, skin, heart valves, tendons, veins, etc.) can improve 12 or more lives by restoring eyesight, helping fight infections in burn patients and preventing the loss of mobility and disability.
By enrolling in the Donate Life Registry, donors are giving legal consent for the recovery of their organs, tissues and eyes for the purposes of transplantation and research at the time of their death. Data collection is from March, 2016.
