Did you read the article? There is a clear statistical anomaly centered about 10 years before reliable birth records were introduced. You are ex post facto rationalizing the longevity of a region for where there is evidence of age-related fraud.

"Please don't comment on whether someone read an article. "Did you even read the article? It mentions that" can be shortened to "The article mentions that.""


I did read the article, and the anomaly only exists (or at least is shown) only for US data.

Thank you for your nice reply.

I was making a general point independent of any fraud or lack of records.
