Regional variation in discontinuation of dialysis in the US. Shown are estimated probabilities of dialysis discontinuation in the US end-stage renal disease networks (1995–2009), adjusted for covariates and grouped into quintiles. Networks 2, 3 and 18 are in the lowest quintile, while networks 1, 11 and 16 populate the highest quintile.
