U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for April 11

WASHINGTON, April 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:



Profile America -- Saturday, April 11th. April is a month of spring and resurgence. It's also National Donate Life Month -- a time to consider organ donation to give a new lease on life to someone. The purpose of the observance is to encourage organ and tissue donation, and to sign

a donor card when getting a driver's license. Each day, it's estimated that more than 70 people are given a chance to extend their lives by transplant operations. However, others die every day because of a shortage of donations. Over 100,000 people are on waiting lists for donated organs to save them from certain death. Transplant operations have become very successful, with the one year survival rate for some procedures as high as 98 percent. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at
