Bad news, guys. The chances of making it to 100 are much greater if you’re a woman.

The 2010 census found 80 percent of the 53,364 people age 100 or older are women, according to a report out today. For every 100 centenarians, only 20.7 percent are men. The overall number of centenarians has increased by 5.8 percent since 2000.

What helps the women? The largest study of centenarians in this country, the New England Centenarian Study, suggests women handle age-related diseases better than men.

But among men who survive to 100, they seem better able to function than the women. The census report finds the men are more likely to be living with others in a household (43.5 percent) while women are more likely to be living in a nursing home (35.2 percent).

The census report also finds:
— The population age 100 or older made up a small proportion of the total U.S. population, representing less than two per 10,000 people.
— More than half (62.5 percent) of centenarians were age 100 or 101.
— Those who make it to become a supercentenarian (age 110 or older) make up 0.6 percent, or 330, of the centenarian population.

The report also shows that centenarians are less diverse than the rest of the population. Nearly 83 percent of centenarians are white, compared to about 72 percent in the total population. Nearly 6 percent (5.8 percent) are Hispanic compared to the 16.3 percent of Hispanics who make up the total population.

Most centenarians live in the South (17,444), followed by the Midwest (13,112), Northeast (12,244) and West (10,564). California has the highest number (5,921), followed by Florida, New York and Texas.
