This is a list of tables of the verified oldest people in the world in ordinal rank, such as oldest person or oldest man. In these tables, a supercentenarian is considered 'verified' if his or her claim has been validated by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group (GRG) or Guinness World Records.

The longest unambiguously documented human lifespan is that of Jeanne Calment of France (1875–1997), who died at age 122 years, 164 days. She met Vincent van Gogh when she was 12 or 13.[1] This led to news media attention in 1985, after Calment turned 110. Subsequent investigation found documentation for Calment's age, beyond any reasonable question, in the records of her native city, Arles, France.[2] More evidence of Calment's lifespan has been produced than for any other supercentenarian; her case serves as an archetype in the methodology for verifying the ages of the world's oldest people.[3]

The longest undisputed lifespan for a male is that of Jiroemon Kimura of Japan (1897–2013), who died in June 2013 at age 116 years, 54 days. He was also the world's oldest living person from December 2012 until his death.

Since Kimura's death on 12 June 2013, Misao Okawa, also of Japan, born 5 March 1898, is the oldest living person in the world whose age can be documented. Okawa has also been the oldest living woman since the death of 115-year old Koto Okubo of Japan on 12 January 2013. Since the death of 111-year old Alexander Imich of the United States on 8 June 2014, Sakari Momoi of Japan, born 5 February 1903, is the world's oldest living man.

Oldest people ever

Systematic verification of longevity has only been practiced in recent decades and only in certain parts of the world.
