Supercentenarians

Throughout history there have been extraordinary claims of longevity. Until recently, we did not have the life-long identification and documentation necessary to verify such claims. Although there are possibly hundreds or thousands of individuals worldwide who have made it to the Supercentenarian and older ages, there has generally been fewer than 90 individuals alive at any one time who are documented to have lived 110 years or more.

Below are the top 100 oldest documented lived humans. As new claims come forth and are documented, this list will change and hopefully individuals of longer and longer lifespans will appear on this list.

Supercentenarian research study


Definitions

Centenarians: individuals from 100 through 104 years of age.

Semi-Supercentenarians: individuals 105, through 109 years of age.

Supercentenarians: individuals who have reached the age of 110 through 114 years of age, something achieved by only one in a thousand centenarians (based on European data).

Semi-Ultracentenarians: individuals 115 through 119 years of age. Only 2% of Supercentenarians live to be Semi-Ultracentenarians.

Ultracentenarians: individuals 120 years and older. Only one person, Jeanne Calment, is known to have made it to this age
