Credits to @apoyta for his work on GW and helping me out in private.

Note: Andrei Kuznetov and the unidentified living(?) men born in 1914 and 1915 are not present in the data. There's also a chance an unidentified man (1911-2015) is the male recordholder for Satakunta region.

Given most of Finland sits between latitudes 60 and 70 north, there is arguably some correlation between the more southerly areas and slightly higher maximum ages.

However at a guess it must also be possible that the more southerly regions could have larger populations, hence potentially a greater pool of potential candidates for extreme longevity?

I'd argue the primary factor for the higher ages is the higher population, which is, of course, determined by the climate to a large extent.
