List of Austrian Chancellors by Longevity

This is a list of Austrian Chancellors after the Second World War by longevity. Where the person in question is still living, the longevity is calculated up to 25 June 2014.

Two measures of the longevity are given - this is to allow for the differing number of leap days occurring within the life of each Chancellor. The first column is the number of days between date of birth and date of death, allowing for leap days; the second column breaks this number down into years and days, with the years being the number of whole years the Chancellor lived, and the days being the remaining number of days after his last birthday.

Overview

The median age at which a Chancellor first takes office is roughly 53 years and 11 months, which falls between Josef Klaus and Fred Sinowatz. The youngest person to become Chancellor was Leopold Figl, who took office at the age of 43 years, 79 days. The oldest person to become Chancellor was Karl Renner at the age of 74 years, 134 days.

The oldest living Chancellor is Franz Vranitzky, born 4 October 1937 (aged 76 years, 264 days). The youngest living former Chancellor is Alfred Gusenbauer, born 8 February 1960 (aged 54 years, 137 days). The youngest living Chancellor is the incumbent, Werner Faymann, born 4 May 1960 (aged 54 years, 52 days).

The longest lived Chancellor was Josef Klaus, who died 26 July 2001 at the age of 90 years, 345 days. Franz Vranitzky, the oldest living Chancellor, will tie Klaus if he lives to 14 September 2028. The shortest lived Chancellor was Leopold Figl, who died 9 May 1965 at the age of 62 years, 219 days.
