The number of nonagenarians (people in their 90s) rose from 7.8 million to 16.5 million between 2000 and 2015. The number of centenarians (people age 100 and older) is expected to jump from 180,000 in 2000 to 3.2 million by 2050. According to a study published in International Psychogeriatrics, in nonagenarians and centenarians, exceptional longevity is characterized by positive psychological traits and mindset, hard work, and strong bonds with family, faith, and land.
