Good for her! 114 years of age, amazing.
I'm hoping I reach at least 87, because no male (in my extended) family has made it to 88.
I'm 55, but have already lost 3 siblings in their 50's.
Enjoy every day, folks!!

My grandparents were born in the 1800s. That didn't seem like a big deal when I was a kid but now it is sobering.

85 is about right...after sex machine breaks, life has lost most of its fun. I cannot understand how long people are willing to endure an asexual lifestyle.

White Americans 78.9
Black Americans 75.3

2014 STUDY

Hispanic Americans 82.89
White Americans 79.12
Black Americans 75.2

2019 - TEXAS LIFE EXPECTANCY STUDY

Hispanic Women 83.9
Hispanic Men 78.28

White Women 80.6
White Men 75.6

Black Women 78.0
Black Men 72.4

From the data it's clear Hispanic Americans are out living White & Black Americans. Data also reflects the group with the highest life expectancy in the US is Asian Americans at 86.67

Happy birthday to Ms. Murphy. Glad to see that a worthwhile life (still paying her own bills at 90!) was rewarded by healthy longevity.



Incidentally, due to longevity trends on one side of my family, I have a special interest in extreme longevity. Although the average life expectancy has been steadily rising until 2 years ago, the number of people who live past 107 appears not to be increasing. There are at any particular time about 100 people in the world aged 111 and above. Approximately half of them tend to be Japanese, a quarter from the US, and a quarter from the rest of the world (mostly France and Italy). Almost all of them, with usually 3-4 exceptions, tend to be women. The longevity of the Japanese (as well as some Mediterraneans) is most likely due to diet.


Although the mean life expectancy of Afroamericans is not higher than that of other Americans, a large proportion of Americans older than 110 (ie, usually more than half) are indeed Afroamerican women. Considering that Afroamericans comprise only about 12%-14% of the US population, it is significant that about 60% of Americans older than 110 at any particular time tend to be Afroamerican. I'd guess their longevity is likely genetic, but nobody really knows. We are talking about a very tiny group of people anyway.
