Page last updated: 23 June 2011

Based on analysis undertaken for this Study using Australian and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA) data, the prevalence of ESKD cases to 2020, on a year by year basis, were estimated. A number of scenarios were modelled, indicating that the number of people receiving treatment in the CA region will lie between 312 (based on a stabilisation of the yearly number of incident patients) and 479 (assuming a steady long-term linear growth consistent with the trend since 1995) individuals.
