    Leukemia Statistics: Age-at-Diagnosis Figures

    From 1998-2002, the median age at leukemia diagnosis was 67 years of age. The percentages of people diagnosed with leukemia based on age were as follows:

    * 11.4 percent were diagnosed under age 20

    * 5.2 percent between 20 and 34

    * 5.9 percent between 35 and 44

    * 9.7 percent between 45 and 54

    * 13.9 percent between 55 and 64

    * 20.5 percent between 65 and 74

    * 23.2 percent between 75 and 84
