Consistency[edit]

I think there should be a change in all of the supercentenarian deaths pages to keep consistency with the List of living supercentenarians. There, it says, "To be considered verified a supercentenarian must have their age validated by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research such as the Gerontology Research Group (GRG)." I think on the supercentenarian deaths pages, instead of directly saying "The list includes people whose lifespans have been verified and pending, also known as lifespans which have not had their age fully validated, by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG)," we should have something like "The list includes people whose lifespans have been verified and pending, also known as lifespans which have not had their age fully validated, by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research such as the Gerontology Research Group (GRG)." Also, instead of directly saying "There are currently X people who are pending by the GRG, of whom X are female and X are male," the article should just say "There are currently X people who are pending, of whom X are female and X are male." An important note is that this would not only mean keeping consistency, but would also make sense for earlier supercentenarian deaths pages, where other bodies of longevity research were used, like on the List of supercentenarians who died in the 1990s page, where the International Database on Longevity (IDOL) is sourced.
