Acute lymphocytic leukemia statistics
It can take several years to collect and confirm cancer data, so the number of new cancer cases and deaths from recent years may not be available for some time. The most recent data available are provided below.
Incidence and mortality
Incidence is the total number of new cases of cancer. Mortality is the number of deaths due to cancer.
These leukemia statistics include ages 15 and older.
The most recent incidence and mortality statistics for acute lymphocytic leukemia are from 2013:
- 480 Canadians were diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia.
- 138 Canadians died from acute lymphocytic leukemia.
- 255 men were diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, and 72 died from it.
- 220 women were diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia and 66 died from it.

My favourite thing about Camp Goodtime is being able to hang out with other kids who have survived cancer. They know what is going on in your life and can help you get through it.
