  • IRR refers to the relative incidence of living kidney donation in 2015 relative to 2005, on the basis of a multilevel Poisson regression model adjusted for donor- and population-level age, race, ESRD rate standardized for race and age, and RUCA, clustered by state of residence. For example, women in the lowest income quintile (Q1) had a 45% decline in living related donation between 2005 and 2015, with an IRR of 0.55.
