There have been 15 verified supercentenarians from Sweden.[1] The oldest person ever from Sweden was Astrid Zachrison, (May 15th, 1895-May 15th, 2008) who died on her 113th birthday in 2008. As of 21 September 2014, there are no verified living supercentenarians from Sweden.

Living Swedish supercentenarians[edit]

Below is a list of the oldest living people from Sweden. Those listed as 'verified' have been validated by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group. Those listed as 'pending' have provided at least one document supporting the claimed age but have not been validated yet. Those that are 'unverified' have not gone through the verification process for various reasons.
