Over 10% of Japanese people are now aged 80 or above: Government

  • Japan is facing a population crisis as more than one in 10 people in the country are now aged 80 or older. This is due to its low birth rate and young people delaying marriage and having children, resulting in a shrinking and aging population.
  • The Japanese government has acknowledged the urgency of the situation and has announced new spending to support young couples who wish to have children. However, efforts to boost birth rates have been met with little success due to the high cost of living and long working hours.
  • With the elderly population projected to account for 34.8% of the population by 2040, Japan is relying on its elderly labor force to address the labor shortage. This is reflected in the high employment rate among the elderly, which is among the highest across major economies.
