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 Wikipedia editors improve the quality of biographies of living persons by ensuring that the articles maintain a neutral point of view, maintain factual accuracy, and are properly sourced. Recent changes to these articles are listed on Special:RecentChangesLinked/Category:Living people.
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.
