Are You Surprised, That There's a Lot More Very Old Women Alive, Than Men?


There's a surprisingly big difference between the amount of very old men and women. Women live in average healthier, but I don't think it affects the very old age groups that much. I think it's because women have very good hormones and genes, which helps them to live longer. Also women are in average shorter, which might help.
I made statistics from different parts of the world.

USA:
90yo+: Women 1'873K, Men 853K (2.2 times more women)
100yo+: Women 100K, Men 27K (3.7 times more women)

Japan:
90yo+: Women 1'962K, Men 680K (2.9 times more women)
100yo+: Women 108K, Men 17K (6.4 times more women)

Australia:
90yo+: Women 160K, Men 75K (2.1 times more women)
100yo+: Women 10.0K, Men 2.7K (3.7 times more women)

Russia:
90yo+: Women 701K, Men 105K (6.7 times more women)
100yo+: Women 14.8K, Men 1.8K (8.2 times more women)
