As previously serving actuary in Bulgaria, I would like to express my deep admirations with the usefulness of the scientific research done by Mr. Gavrilov and Mrs. Gavrilova on the topic of the Talk on aging and longevity. My question is: Are the listed factors, as predictors of the extraordinary human longevity listed by importance, identified by their research. In my opinion greater stress could be expected on socioeconomic status, father’s lifespan and professional affiliation.

Thank you for your kind comments and your interest!
Yes, you are right: the predictors of the extraordinary human longevity listed in the initial post are listed randomly, rather than by importance.
It may take some time and additional research to put them in a "correct order."
Many thanks again!
