The 100th article and two years on, our "Canny View" column has come a long way, to say the least.

For the 100th article, I thought I would write about the 100-year life because we are living longer than ever and there is now an increased possibility that one might live to 100.

Statistics New Zealand's most recent figures show that the average life expectancy at 65 is 19.6 years for males and 21.7 for females. That means if you make it to 65, you're projected to, on average, live to 84-86 years old.
