Japan’s centenarian population has hit a record high of 69,785, with women accounting for 88.1 per cent. According to the health ministry, medical advances and increased health awareness have caused this historic jump of 2,014 persons from last year, which is nearly seven times higher than it was two decades ago. At present, there are 61,454 women and 8,331 men over the age of 100, including former Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone, who turned 100 in May.
