The number for 2017 was higher than the two previous years, but for all three years, a new kidney was the most demanded organ to be transplanted.
Highest activity rate for kidney transplants

   The rate of organ transplantation activity for kidneys in Sweden was higher in 2017 than the two previous years. In 2017, the rate was 47.9 per million population for kidney transplant activity. The corresponding figure for liver transplantation, the second most needed organ, was 18.3 per million population.  

Highest death number on the waiting list for kidney patients
