Notes

  • Incidence data are provisional, November 2013.
  • Rates are per 1,000,000 children. Rates for 0-14 and 0-19 year age intervals are age-adjusted within these intervals to the 2000 US standard population, with 95% confidence intervals.
  • Rates based on fewer than 4 cases per year are unstable and should be used with caution.
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphomas, Burkitt, and miscellaneous lymphomas are grouped together under II(b,c,d).
