Australian Organ Donor Register (AODR) Statistics

The Australian Organ Donor Register (AODR) is the national register for people to record their decision about becoming an organ and tissue donor. People must be 16 years or older to register.

The AODR is administered by the Australian Government Department of Human Services. Read more about the Australian Organ Donor Register on the Department of Human Services website.

AODR statistics are published monthly. The statistics provide the number of people who have registered their decision in regards to organ and tissue donation on the AODR by age group, state and gender. These statistics are further provided as a percentage of the Australian population using [ABS Statistics] (http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/web+pages/statistics).

Two reports are provided:

Consent registrations: A legally valid consent registration refers to people who have registered by a signed consent form. Only people aged 18 years and over can register their legally valid consent on the Australian Organ Donor Register. Those aged 16-17 years can still register their intention to donate.

Intent registrations: Intent registrations refers to people or have registered their intent to donate or their objection online or by phone, they have not signed a consent form.

Data is provided in the following formats:

Excel/ XLS/ XLSX: The human readable data for the current year (2016) is provided in an individual excel file for consent registrations and an individual excel file for intent registrations. Historical registration data (2007-2015) may be found in the relevant zipped excel files.

CSV: Due to the volume of data, the current (2016) and historical (2007-2015) machine readable files for consent registrations and intent registrations may be found in the relevant zipped files.
