Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) accounts for less than 1% of all cancer deaths in the UK (2014) for both males and females.[1-3]
In 2014, there were 1,033 CLL deaths in the UK: 628 (61%) in males and 405 (39%) in females, giving a male:female ratio of around 16:10.[1-3] The crude mortality rate shows that there are 2 CLL deaths for every 100,000 males in the UK and 1 for every 100,000 females.
The European age-standardised mortality rates (AS rates) do not differ significantly between the constituent countries of the UK for either sex.[1-3]
