The prolongation of existence to an advanced age. Haller collected examples of more than one thousand centenarians. He had knowledge of sixty-two persons aged from 110 to 120 years; of twenty-nine, from 120 to 130 years; and of fifteen, who had attained from 130 to 140 years. Beyond this advanced age, examples of longevity are much more rare and less sufficiently attested. The following list of instances of very advanced ages has been given. Longevity also means length or duration of life, (F.) Duree de la vie. The mean age at death, (F.) Vie moyenne, of different classes and professions enables an estimate to be formed of the expectation or value of life in each.
