There’s good data here with lots of fancy graphs. Or you can create your own data here, but it’s really hard to quantify the basis of your question: The average MELD score for transplantation is 20 nationally (I’m now at 14).
The number of transplants done by region (with the Southeast which performed the most transplants): Region 1 (New England): 248; Region 3 (Southeast): 1097; Region 6 (Pacific Northwest): 162
Sadly, the Pacific Northwest does less transplants than the Northeast, so most likely the waitlist is longer. 😦 We won’t be moving there anytime soon.

Are you sure about those stats for the PNW? I’m pretty sure there was a liver transplant episode on Portlandia.
Did the transplant recipient get his stitches in the shape of a bird? I wonder if that’s an option…
