List of the oldest living people

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of the 100 oldest people who have been verified to be alive within the last year and whose death has not been reliably reported. 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]

Upon the death of Chiyo Miyako of Japan on 22 July 2018, Kane Tanaka, also of Japan, became the world's oldest living person whose age has been verified.[3][4][5]
