  Notes
1 The age given is as of the last update.
It is possible some people may have died, but no case should be more than one year out of date.
If an individual has not been confirmed living in the past year,
they are removed from the list, even if their death has not been reported.
2 The total number Supercentenarians that we have cited above has been frequently been
misconstrued in the news media as representing every single person in the world aged 110 
and over.  The actual estimated number of worldwide living Supercentenarians is more likely
to be between [300 - 450] persons.  For the USA, we predict something like [60 - 75]
Supercentenarians.  While the total number of validated cases cited above is only about ten percent 
of the suspected real-world total, it should also be noted that the bulk of the true Supecentenarians
actually fall between [110 - 113] years old; hardly any ever survive to live past 115.  {Our estimate
of [300 - 450] persons is based on a survival percentage of centenarians-to-age-110 to be 
between [0.15 - 0.25] percent.}
It should be noted that a significant majority of worldwide claimants to be age 110-or-over
have subsequently been proven to be false; these individuals and more often their family
or friends have their own personal motives for claiming these persons and, we are sad to report,
are occasionally disingenuous (not well-intentioned).
We believe that the increasing number of true cases that we have observed during   
the last 30 years are the result of at least two factors:
(1) the diligence of our own committee members throughout the world who deserve much 
of the credit; and
(2) far more persons are reaching 110 than ever before. That is, people who were dying
at [105 - 109] are now reaching [110 - 113] years of age.
Please note that the SSA data show that both of these reasons are major factors,
and that it would be incorrect to ascribe all of the increase to an actual increase in
longevity or all of the increase due to better record-keeping.  Coming in the next few
months, an SSA Report, along with our own historical databases, will better show
how much of the increase can be ascribed to each of these two factors.
Finally, there is no statistical evidence to support the hypothesis that the absolute
number of Supercentenarians is increasing as a percentage of the total population,
although there is some evidence from animal studies that a reduction in the force of
evolution after age 90 changes our mortality from an exponentially-increasing rate to
a constant rate in the oldest old.  This has become an important area of research in
biodemography, and the answers are not in yet.
3 To Our Readers: Do you know of someone aged 110 or older currently living who 
is not on this list, but has the documents to prove it?
In this case, please contact one of our two Supercentenarian Claims Investigators:
Mr. Robert Young of Atlanta, GA at ryoung@grg.org
Mr. Mark Muir of Woodbridge, VA at mmuir@grg.org

questions answered as to their rank among the oldest and/or their respective status?
