National Blood Collection & Utilization Survey
Since 1997, the biennial National Blood Collection and Utilization Survey (NBCUS) has been the primary method of gathering blood collection and utilization data in the United States. The survey includes questions on general facility information; blood collections, processing, and testing; blood and blood component transfusions; modification of components; and prices paid by hospitals for blood components. To estimate blood collection and utilization, all U.S. blood collection centers and acute care hospitals (with the exception of Department of Defense facilities) performing at least one hundred inpatient surgical procedures per year and located within the 50 states and the District of Columbia are asked to participate.
