  • Only 43 percent of respondents understand that it is impossible for a brain dead person to recover from his or her injuries.

  • "There is a real crisis taking place with regards to organ availability in this country - and dispelling commonly held misperceptions and increasing the public's trust of the donation and transplant system is paramount when it comes to solving it," said Pace Jones.

    To help spread the word about the importance of organ donation registration, Donate Life America is celebrating National Donate Life Month in April with numerous local and national educational programs and several new initiatives, including the launch of the official Donate Life America Facebook fan page, www.facebook.com/donatelife. The page makes it easy for users to register as donors in their states and share messages in support of organ and tissue donation. It also features monthly polls; posts from celebrities, recipients, donors and donor families encouraging donor registration; and listings of resources and upcoming events.

    About the Survey

    The survey was fielded through Survey Sampling International, one of the largest providers of online panels in the U.S., during February 2009 on behalf of Donate Life America. The online survey of 5,100 U.S. adults included a sample size of 100 in each state plus the District of Columbia. The aggregated nationwide data was weighted to reflect the relative proportion of the U.S. adult population in each state. The sample was controlled to match the U.S. population as a whole on age, gender, education, income and ethnicity.
