Two national surveys using nearly identical survey instruments to identify public views and behaviors related to organ donation were conducted in 1993 and 2005. The proposed study will identify current organ donation views and practices of the American public and various population subgroups using a survey instrument similar to the two earlier studies in order to track changes over time. It will measure issues such as public knowledge about and attitudes toward organ donation, public commitment to or willingness to donate, impediments to public willingness to donate, and attitudes toward living donation, donation practices, policy issues, allocation policy, presumed consent, and financial incentives for donation. Demographic information also will be collected. The randomly drawn sample will consist of 3,250 adults (age 18 and over), including an oversample of Asians, Hispanics, African Americans, and Native Americans, and will be geographically representative of the United States. The survey instrument will be administered in English and Spanish languages through computer-assisted telephone interviews.

In its first meeting, the ACOT suggested such a survey to gather information to inform both public education efforts and policy decisions on the issue of organ donation.
