Researchers in this study evaluated the influence of center-level factors on the rate of living donor kidney transplantation (LDKT) among African Americans as compared to non-African American counterparts. Hierarchical multivariate logistic regression models were used to derive center-specific estimates through a quantification of patient-level factors, the association of center-level characteristics and degree of racial disparity […]
