List of supercentenarians by continent

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A supercentenarian (sometimes hyphenated as super-centenarian) is someone who has lived to or passed their 110th birthday. This age is achieved by about one in 1,000 centenarians.[1] Anderson et al. concluded that supercentenarians live a life typically free of major age-related diseases until shortly before maximum human lifespan is reached (theoretically estimated to be 126 years).[2]

European supercentenarians[edit]

European supercentenarians are residents or emigrants from Europe who have attained or surpassed 110 years of age. As of January 2015, the Gerontology Research Group (GRG) had validated the longevity claims of more than 600 European supercentenarians.[3] The oldest living person in Europe and second oldest European ever is Frenchwoman Lucile Randon, born 11 February 1904, aged 117 years, 220 days.

The oldest European ever, and the world's oldest person ever, was her fellow Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who lived to the age of 122 years and 164 days. The oldest European man ever was Christian Mortensen from Denmark, who emigrated to the United States where he died at the age of 115 years and 252 days. The oldest non-emigrant European man was Spaniard Joan Riudavets Moll, who lived 114 years and 81 days. Nikolay Zak and Philip Gibbs however dispute the Calment case and raise doubts about the Mortensen case.[a][4]

Beyond the 50 oldest Europeans in aggregate, there are more detailed lists of the oldest Belgian, British, Danish, Finnish, French, German, Irish, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish people.

Oldest European residents ever[edit]

Below is a list of the oldest 50 supercentenarians who have died or are living in Europe. The list including all known and validated supercentenarians who died before 2015 was compiled by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).[5] Later cases were sourced either from more recent GRG data,[6] from administrative reports or from press coverage, as indicated in the table. Unranked entries have not yet been validated by the GRG.

Asian supercentenarians[edit]

This is an incomplete list of supercentenarians who were born or died in Asia, or are living there. According to the Gerontology Research Group, the verified oldest Asian person ever is Kane Tanaka of Japan, born 2 January 1903, aged 118 years, 260 days.[6] The verified oldest man is Jiroemon Kimura, also from Japan, who died on 12 June 2013, aged 116 years and 54 days. As of 19 September 2021, the oldest living person in Asia (and the world too) is again Kane Tanaka.

The vast majority of verified Asian cases of supercentenarians come from Japan, which has kept birth records for more than a century, while other Asian countries have historically been less meticulous about keeping such records. According to The Washington Post, China and India have many supercentenarians, but none are confirmed, as their governments did not track births prior to the early 1900s.[18]
