This category is intended for use in articles structured as biographical entries for living individuals. Purpose: Because living persons may suffer personal harm from inappropriate information, we should watch their articles carefully. This category exists to help editors improve the quality of biographies of living people by ensuring that the articles maintain a neutral point of view, maintain factual accuracy, and are properly sourced. Organization: This category should not be sub-categorized. Entries are generally sorted by family name. Maintenance: Individuals of advanced age (over 90) for whom no documentation has existed for a decade or longer, may be removed from this category and transferred to Category:Possibly living people. Errata: Any individual born before 1905 whose living status remains undetermined, should have this category replaced with Category:Year of death missing (the same application should be followed for individuals in Category:Possibly living people and those in Category:Missing people who had not been heretofore declared legally dead).
