Wisconsin Organ & Tissue Donor Program Donor Intent Query
When applicants for a Wisconsin driver's license or state identification card come into a Department of Transportation (DOT) Service Center, they are asked if they wish to be registered as organ and tissue donors. This web application compiles these responses quarterly and shows, in aggregate, how decisions vary by age, gender, race/ethnicity and county.
On a statewide basis, this data is perhaps the best measure of public support for organ and tissue donation in Wisconsin. Information from the web site guides public education efforts and allows awareness campaigns or educational activities to be targeted to where they are most needed. Subsequent reports could help gauge the success of such efforts and, ultimately, increase the number of people and families who say yes to giving the Gift of Life.
The data used by this application does not contain names, addresses or other personally identifiable information.
