This is a list of the 50 oldest people who have been verified to be alive as of the dates of the cited supporting sources. It is estimated that there are between 150 and 600 living people who have reached the age of 110.[1][2] The true number is uncertain as not all supercentenarians are known to researchers at a given time and some claims cannot be validated or are fraudulent.[1]

Kane Tanaka of Japan is the world's oldest living person whose age has been verified.[3]
