The race groups, white, black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, and Asian or Pacific Islander, include persons of Hispanic and non-Hispanic origin. Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. See Appendix II, Hispanic origin; Race.


Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services began collecting Hispanic ethnicity data in April 1995.


Not Hispanic includes unknown ethnicity.

NOTES: Persons with unknown age, gender, or race are excluded. For incidence estimates, age is determined as of the date of diagnosis with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). For prevalence estimates, age is calculated as of December 31 of each year. Prevalence estimates include patients with a functioning transplant. See Appendix I, United States Renal Data System (USRDS). See Appendix II, End-stage renal disease; Incidence; Prevalence.
