25 September 2019 – Guardian

The latest data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reveal that the number of centenarians is now 13,170. This is nearly 73% more than in 2002, when it was 7,630.

The data also shows that the number of nonagenarians – people aged 90 and over – has increased by half in the same period: there are more than 400,000 women in the UK today aged 90 or more compared with 183,000 men.
