Istat has published a study on the centenarians present in Italy taking into consideration the years between 2009 and 2021, some very interesting data emerge from the document (available in full at this link). Liguria is among the regions of Italy with the highest ratio between population aged 105 or more and resident population (3 per 100 thousand), only Molise and Valle d’Aosta surpass our region, which settles in third place together in Friuli and Abruzzo.

As of January 1, 2021, 17,177 people over 100 years old were counted in Italy, 83% of them women; in this period of time, 7,262 individuals have reached or exceeded the 105-year-old threshold (851 men and 6,411 women). Of these, 1,111 were still alive as of January 1, 2021, also in this case the female gender dominates (about 90%). Furthermore, between 2009 and 2021, resident people aged 100 and over increased from just over 10,000 to 17,000, while those aged at least 105 more than doubled, from 472 to 1,111. Most of them reside in Northern Italy: 284 in the north-west and 243 in the north-east, 238 in the south, 225 in the center and 121 in the islands.

The region with the highest ratio between the population aged 105 and over and the total resident population is Molise (4.1 per 100 thousand), followed by Valle d’Aosta (3.2 per 100 thousand), Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Liguria and Abruzzo (3.0 per 100 thousand in all three regions). Lombardy, despite having the highest number of residents with at least 105 years in absolute value (161), has a ratio of 1.6 per 100 thousand, slightly below the national average (1.9 per 100 thousand).

Analyzing the relationship between the population aged 105 and over and the resident population aged 80 and over, the regional distribution is very similar in hierarchies: Molise remains the region with the highest concentration of people reaching the age of 105. , almost 46 for every 100,000 residents over 79, followed by Valle d’Aosta, Abruzzo, Friuli, Emilia Romagna and Liguria.

The data that emerge from the document also include that relating to the incidence of covid. Unlike the other age groups of the elderly population, for those who have reached or exceeded 105 years of age, no significant increase in deaths was observed in 2020, the first year of the covid pandemic.
