How Old is Old?
65 Years old is still young!
How old is old? World Health Organisation (WHO) had declared that 65 years old is still considered young. Before, based on the Friendly Societies Act (1875) in Britain, old was deﬁned by the age of 50. The UN has not adopted a standard criterion but lately 60 years old was referred to as the border age to the word ‘old’. However, the health organization had done new research recently, according to average health quality and life expectancy and deﬁned a new criterion that divides human age as follows:
0 to 17 years old: underage
18 to 65 years old: youth or young people
66 to 79 years old: middle-aged
80 to 99 years old: elderly or senior
100+ years old: long-lived elderly
