Byline: ALICE CACHIA

Your odds get better the younger you are, data shows MORE than 8.4 million people alive today will live until their 100th birthday, new figures have revealed - including nearly a quarter of kids under the age of 10.

Your odds are significantly better if you're female, too. More than 14 of out every 100 women alive will reach the milestone, compared to 11 out of 100 males.

Figures show an estimated 196,600 babies out of 782,450 born this year - or 25.1 out of 100 - will reach the 100-year-old milestone.
