nicholson Posted January 26, 2016 Report Share Posted January 26, 2016 I just tripped over the following: In the latest year for which the data are available - 2011 - 2470 people over the age of 100 died in Canada. 933 of them died aged 100; 590 were 101; 383 aged 102; 257 103; 148 104; 69 105; 55 106; 25 107; 10 were 108; 4 109; and 8 were over 110 (no further breakdown). There are more really-old people around than I had thought. And the median age at which canadian males were dying in 2011 was A) about four years younger than 'life expectancy' and; B) had risen by 3.3 years over the previous 20 years. http://www.prdh.umontreal.ca/BDLC/data/can/Deaths_1x1.txt (Brought to you by the gnomes at the: Institute for the Study of Obscure Data, who wish to remind you that the unverified conventional wisdom is almost invariably mistaken.)
