Executive Summary

The goal of this proposed initiative is to provide a data resource on incidence, prevalence, mortality, and cost of kidney disease in the United States, satisfying a Congressional legislative mandate (OBRA 1986). This resource provides an invaluable resource for renal epidemiologists and colleagues in other government agencies, as well as providing a ready access to data for young investigators.
