It works for everybody, because this is the 111th year since 1900. Your birth year and your age necessarily add up to the total of that period.In the case of children born 2000 onwards, the birthyear has to be called 100, 101 etc to make it work

This trick does not always work. For instance, say some one was born in 1899 and they will be 112 this year, then by that calculation, the sum would be 211.
Additionally, my niece was born in 2000. She will be 11 this year. By that calculation the sum would be 011.
There really is no explanation to this, other than a fundamental understanding of numbers.
