This is a list of supercentenarians born in 1878. As of 18 November 2020, 29 of them have been validated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).

Two people are currently pending as of February 2015, which means that there is sufficient evidence to support the claims, but the validation process has not yet been completed.

There are 10 additional cases on the list for which research has been made, but whose claims have not yet been reviewed and processed by the GRG. This category is referred to as ”unvalidated”.

Cohort extinction took place on 7 May 1994 when Margaret Skeete of United States passed away at the age of 115 years, 192 days.
