Individuals that live to an age where non-Gompertzian mortality rates are seen could be considered “longevity outliers”. However, more and more people are reaching these ages and the gerontologist, Aubrey de Grey, sees no reason why humans shouldn't live to be 1000. We perform an international comparison of the drivers of longevity, including a detailed international comparison of cause of death, and consider the prospects for future improvements. In particular we use our internally developed “Death Toolbox” to consider how this compares to recent trends seen in Ireland.
