  • Supercentenarians around the world

    For the first time, an international research team has tracked down the oldest people in the world – a group they call “supercentenarians.” These are people who celebrated 110 birthdays or more. The study, by the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany, was prompted by the rising numbers of centenarians worldwide. Researchers in 15 nations have found more than 600 supercentenarians – and 19 lived beyond the age of 115. As with centenarians, women by far outnumbered men. Here are the top five countries with the most supercentenarians.
