Tomorrow, 05 March 2024, Juan Vicente Pérez Mora will officially tie the record of the longest male cohort of supercentenarians! Congratulations Juan!

The longest reign used to be held by James Wiggins, who passed away on 16 October 1991. Interestingly, this record was broken by four 1889-born men:

4. Antonio Todde (d. 03 January 2002)
3. John McMorran (d. 24 February 2003)
2. Yukichi Chuganji (d. 28 September 2003)
1. Joan Riduavets Moll (d. 05 March 2004)

Even more interestingly, only one man from our 1890s cohort managed to pass Mr. Wiggin's reign, but fell short of Mr. Moll's.

1. Jiroemon Kimura (d. 12 June 2013)
(267 days short of passing Mr. Moll)

In 2 days, Mr. Pérez Mora will officially beat the previous record, which is a record that has stood strong for 20 years!

 

 

As for women, Jeanne Calment still holds the record of the longest reigning cohort:

2. Emma Morano (15 April 2017)
1. Jeanne Calment (04 August 1997)

As of 2024, the only woman to get close is Emma Morano, who fell 112 days short of beating the record. Hopefully, our 1900s cohort of women will break this record, but it seems more likely a woman from the 1910s will do it.

1880s (male) - beat record
1890s (male) - fell short
1900s (male) - beat record

1870s (female) - beat record
1880s (female) - fell short
1890s (female) - nearly tied
1900s (female) - ?
1910s (female) - beat record???

It seems that every "odd" decade for women, our records either get broken, or get close to being broken, while the "even" decade they fall short. This holds opposite for men. Our 1870s female record holder outlasted our male record holder by nearly 6 years, while our 1880s female record holder outlasted our male record by only 2.

Calment was born close to the middle of the decade, whereas Morano was born only a month before the end... yet Calment still has the record

What about the last survivors for specific countries?

i.e. for the US to beat the 1890s (which I think has the record), Francis has to live until mid-2026, and for Japan to beat the 1890s, Tomiko, Okagi, or Masa has to live until spring of 2025

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but no 1900s decade cohort for a country has gone extinct since Lucile Randon died, and everyone that has died has resided in either the US or Japan

On average, one cohort per year should reach extinction.

In that regard 1904 only reached that stage less than 14 months ago and to be fair it had “punched above its weight” in outperforming 1905 and 1906.

So I’d suggest that particular statistic doesn’t really mean anything yet; though the limited nationalities represented in the deaths is interesting.
