Note: STAR (Standard Transplant Analysis and Research) files are CDs with datasets that contain patient-level information for transplant recipients and waiting list candidates and are provided on CD. Use of a STAR file requires knowledge of database software capable of manipulating files with thousands of records and hundreds of variables, such as SAS or SPSS. Please note that the size of the STAR files precludes the use of software such as Microsoft Excel and Access.
