Footnotes:

a International Classification of Childhood Cancer is based on ICD-O-3. Steliarova-Foucher E, Stiller C, Lacour B, Kaatsch P. International Classification of Childhood Cancer, Third Edition. Cancer. April 1, 2005: Vol 103, No. 7 , pg 1457-1467.

b Percent diagnosed before 1975 of all ages complete prevalence counts.

c All sites females excludes breast cancer.

d SEER site recode Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia was used instead of the ICCC classification lymphocytic leukemia (Ia) because of statistical modeling requirements. For more information regarding the modeling of the prevalence estimates, see Mariotto et al. Long-Term Survivors of Childhood Cancers in the United States. Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev 2009, page 1034.
