Odds ratio (Ors) and 95% confidence intervals were used to measure the risk of childhood A.L.L associated with parental SMOKING, ALCOHOL DRINKING & addiction.Results: There was a significant difference in parental education level (P-value=0, P-value=0.001), income status (P-value=0.001), father's job (0.002) between two groups. The risk of childhood A.L.L was associated with paternal SMOKING (P-value=0.001, OR=2.6, CI 95%, 1.5-4.5), ALCOHOL DRINKING (P-value=0.003, OR=3.33, CI 95%, 2.7-3.9), addiction (P-value=0, OR=42.7, CI95%, 5.56-328.34).Conclusion: The results suggest that socioeconomic factors and paternal SMOKING and ALCOHOL DRINKING are related to risk of childhood leukemia.
