This is what it gives:
Country Latest number of centenarians (year) Earliest number of centenarians (year)
Canada3,795 (2006)[22]3,125 (2001)
China17,800 (2007)[23]-
France14,994 (2010)[24]8,000 (2000)
Japan40,400 (2009)[25]153 (1963)
Netherlands1,370 (2007)[26]10 (1900)
South Korea961 (2005)[27]-
USA104,099 (2009)[28]38,300 (1990)
England & Wales9,330 (mid 2007)[29]102 (1911)[30]
Spain≈10,000 (2007)[31]-

To have my own point of view I also downloaded data from mortality.org (free sign up) and looked at exposition for ages 100+. I did it only for Japan and France but many other countries are available:

in 2007 in Japan: 32,000 centenarians (86% females) and 41 supercentenarians (96% females)
in 2007 in France: 14,000 centenarians (88% females) and 10 supercentenarians (99% females)
Attached File  centenarians.png   11.73KB   60 downloads

The numbers are not too different from the wikipedia, so it doesn't look too bad.

It suggests how much chance a 100 year old person so far had to become supercentenarian: virtually 0...

I just caught a mistake on my previous message: "Nov. 17" ['should have been']--> "Nov. 19".
(That's what happens when one does not celebrate the getting of a Doctor of Philosophy in Physics [this title almost gives me the feeling of 'me becoming a medical doctor, a philosopher and a physicist at the same time']).

The value '110.9 years' in the above (the-18-May-2011) post is a mistake. Ignore or delete that value/post.

Hey, great thread. I think you can ask a mod for a perpetual edit right on your first post, so you can conveniently keep tracks of things on the first page of the thread. Also, really enjoyed the graph you made, so keep us posted and please make an updated version as time goes by :)

I think there was a woman in France who lived to about 125? She died in the last ten years or so.

It seems like the type of people who live past a hundred are the opposite of the type of people on this site, simple, peaceful small town type of people who are content and get along with people. They are generally moderate and seem to believe in God. Probably longevity runs in their families too. Except for work or walking from place to place, they didn't seem to exercise that much or participate in extreme regimens or be real sporty. It seems like living somewhere where the elderly are revered or cared for has a part to play as well. By that measure a lot of people here are screwed.

Her name is Jeanne Calment and she died in 1997, aged 122 years + 164 days.

I am thinking of updating the graph (adding data points for the years 2010 and 2011) around January 2012.
Keep living :)

Come to think of it, I think there are a number of people who lived longer than the example by the original poster.

I misunderstood seivtcho's above question. I guess, now, that the question was directed to Luminosity (about his 'screwed' comments).

That is the impression I get whenever I read about a centenarian, they usually seem to be that kind of person. The people here are the oppposite of that kind of person. Also, women live longer than men generally and most of the people who are into life extension or cryogenics are male.

Struct, most of your examples live to be about 110. How did you miss Jean Calment? Aren't there a number of confirmed people who made it past the ages you quoted? Where is your information coming from?

If that's directed at me, I have read about them over the years or seen stories about them in the media.

I didn't miss her.

I don't know (I, also, don't know what do you mean by 'ages you quoted?').


Where is your information coming from?

What do you mean by 'your information'?

If anyone doesn't know where the numbers are coming from or what they represent, please read the first post of this thread. You can also spend some time on http://grg.org

PS: this being clarified, IMO posts #257 to #265 above should be removed, perhaps not 262

I'll postpone posting the 'updated graph' to maybe Feb. or March. "Unexpectedly" I got 'fired' from teaching physics; nowadays I am getting ready to travel about 5 Mm (megameters) to another location.

Hmm... just from your posts it can be said that you are an intelligent, serious, visionary, motivated, hard working person though. Sometimes the best persons get into trouble because not so great persons above them are afraid. All the best.

Your thinking is fuzzy, Struct. You don't have much in common with known centenarians. Most of them are religious and have other qualities you don't have.
