Is 0 Negative a rare blood type?

No it is more common then Types A and B.

It's not rare, but rather very valuable, because it is the one type of blood that can be given to anybody, with any blood type.

not really

No, but it is the universal donor type. You should donate at your local Red Cross.

It is type o negative, not type 'zero' negative.


You can also (I believe) give type o negative blood to anyone else with any blood type.

enrica v

O is not a rare blood type. But it is the universal donor.

OMG im o negative too
yea it is one of the most rare blood types
but i think its kinda cool
ur unique
in a way
but it can also be bad bcuuz if u were to lose a lot of blood in an accident or sumthing it would be hard to replace that blood
so yea

Rhesus positivity is about 85% in the west, about 90 to 95% in south east asia and almost 100% in the far east. O antigen is the commonest in the west and B in south east Asia. Therefore, the extent of rarity depends upon the race.

ya very rare.

In China, it is found in less than .3% of the population.

In the USA, about 7%.

I think so

Not rare, but a tricky one to have. It is a universal donor type, but if I remember correctly, o negative can only receive from another o negative.
I was told by my mom (registered lab technician) that my o negative blood might make pregnancy difficult unless I married another o negative. Luckily, my husband is o negative, as are both our children.
A woman who is o negative will need medical intervention during a second pregnancy if she is impregnated by a different blood type. The first pregnancy usually will be uneventful, but if the baby has a different blood type, it will cause problems for other pregnancies-I think it causes antibodies that will attack succeeding pregnancies.
I remember this dimly, since my last pregnancy was 11 years ago and blood type was not an issue for me. But for any woman who has o negative blood this could be a problem and should be discussed with a doctor.
I know this ranges far from the question, but it is an important issue not addressed by other answers.

O+ is the most common blood type. Not all racial and ethnic groups have the same mix of these blood types. Hispanic people, for example, have a relatively high number of O’s, while Asian people have a relatively high number of B’s. The mix of the different blood types in the U.S. population is:

White African American Hispanic Asian
O + 37% 47% 53% 39%
O - 8% 4% 4% 1%
A + 33% 24% 29% 27%
A - 7% 2% 2% 0.5%
B + 9% 18% 9% 25%
B - 2% 1% 1% 0.4%
AB + 3% 4% 2% 7%
AB - 1% 3% 0.2% 0.1%
