what would you call "more" or "few" or when used as a noun?

I know they are usually superlative and comparative adjectives...But what would you call them when they are nouns?

Example: A few jump out of windows or drown themselves or take pills; more die by accident; and most of us, the vast majority are slowly devoured by some disease.

Thank you!

    It is still an adjective. What you have here is an assumed noun - you are saying "a few people"
