I guess I thought that was a lot more rare.

Oh, it's rare enough. As of 2010 census, it's 53K persons, 80% of which are women.

But it is getting less rare. Thus, that number should be quite a lot higher in 2030, even adjusted for population gain. The problem is that when a person reaches 100, they typically don't live more than 1-3 more years (the 2-year expectancy at age 100). So, the numbers never really accumulate very much!
