Age Is No Barrier

AGE IS NO BARRIER

Japan's population, currently 128,085,000, experienced a high growth rate during the 20th century, as a result of scientific, industrial, and social changes.

 

Population growth has more recently decreased, because of falling birth rates and almost no net immigration. High sanitary and health standards produce a life expectancy exceeding that of any other nation in the world.

 

The population started declining in 2005, as the 1.067 million births were exceeded by the 1.077 million deaths. Assuming current birth and death rates, the 2005 population of 127 million will decline to 100 million in 2050, and 64 million in 2100--and keep falling.

 

The main problem will be the financial crisis that comes from having a higher and higher Dependency ratio (that is, nonworking young and old compared to working ages.)
