Lunchtime Trivia Thursday, September 7

Q: This is the fastest growing segment of our population. In the next 30 years this group will increase in size by 5 times. Who are they?

A: Those who are 100+ yrs old/ centenarians.

 

Centenarians – those aged 100 or older – were the fastest growing population, with this age group jumping 41.3 per cent amid rising life expectancies. As of 2016, Canada had 8,230 centenarians.

Among those aged 100 and older, there were five women for every man, Statscan said, as women still have longer life expectancies than men. By 2051, the number of centenarians could reach nearly 40,000 – about five times higher than in 2016, the agency projects. Globe and Mail article
