Ten oldest people on record are women

ROME, Italy (AFP) — Italian Emma Morano’s death on Saturday at the age of 117 years, leaves Jamaican Violet Brown, born March 10,1900, as the oldest living person, according to the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).

Here is the list of the 10 oldest living people on the planet, all of whom are women, according to the US-based group.

The list is dominated by Japanese and Italian women, with the oldest man coming in at 16th place at the age of 113 (based on month of birth):

• Violet Brown, 117 years old, Jamaica

• Nabi Tajima, 116, Japan

• Chiyo Miyako, 115, Japan

• Ana Vela-Rubio, 115, Spain

• Marie-Josephine Gaudette, 115, Italy (born in US)

• Giuseppina Projetto-Frau, 114, Italy

• Kane Tanaka, 114, Japan

• Maria-Giuseppa Robucci-Nargiso 114, Italy

• Iso Nakamura, 113,Japan

• Tae Ito, 113, Japan


    • For a fact I know the Caribbean had (or still the) more than one. I believe they are just not recorded. There was family in St.Lucia, daughter, grandmother and aunty. They lived to be 110 and older.

  1. I know of the Smith family in sultibas whom the last died at the age of 112 and the one before 109, so st.lucia has a few

  2. The Japanese inhale enough nuclear material for so long maybe they are immune to dying young.

  3. It is said that chinese Japanese live the longest in the asian countries,why wount you live long when you drink 6-8 servings of water a day 8 servings of fish a day.Why won’t you live ling when your water comes from stream and waterfalls and river’s fresh water.Its only the younger generation of today eat Greasy foods and McDonald and fast foods.The Chinese sell all the greasy food to the public,and they eating all the vegetables and fruits,drinking their fresh clean stream water and eating their fish.I never see a I work in the Medical Field i have never seen a Chinese,Japanese or asian at any of the Medical Facilities that i worked at al is Blacks,Whites,and Hispanics.I wonder why.

  4. A woman in Kenya is also 117- saw programme same day the Italian lady died. We need to start recording and notifying the right authorities. Can Google or anounce and see what comes back. There must be so many people in the Caribbean living long lives. Glory to God for his goodness. I expect to live a good long life too!!! Amen.

  5. Good on you ladies ,gud living nothing wrong with being that old ,they ave looked after themselves very well god bless
