I wanted to start this topic to see how our supercentenarians are doing throughout 2024.

 

As we know, the last 3 Januarys have been bad for supercentenarians (especially the 2022 crash).

 

So here we will mention deaths aged 114 and older.

 

Without forgetting the deaths of 113 years (which is about 114 years)

 

I wouldn't like to say that deaths of supercentenarians aged 110-112 are "the norm", but we eventually consider deaths aged 114 and older to be more serious.

January 2024 passed with a death of 1909.

 

While it wasn't as bad as previous Januarys, there was a meltdown among supercentenarian men.

 

We also had 3 deaths from 1910 and 3 deaths from 1911 (also between deaths from 1912 and 1913)

 

Starting in February we had another loss in 1909 (rest in peace Pearl Berg)

 

I'm also worried about what might happen to 1910 this year.

I think other people that weren't the oldest people in their countries should be added, like Berg and Matsubara were in the top ten, and also Seki Yoshida was 114 too

I actually made this list to list deaths older than 114 (maybe older than 113).

 

To have a standard on this list and compare with other years.

 

Clearly, if we think about deaths at ages 110, 111, and 112, every year would be bad, so I wanted to set a standard.

But it is also interesting to see the oldest people in each country who died during the month, the man or the person
