Video Report: Population Dynamics and the Future of Japan (Dr. Miho Iwasawa, Director, Department of Population Dynamics Research, IPSS)
post date : 2022.09.29
Japanese society has long been noted to have a declining birthrate and aging population. In 2021, the population decreased by 644,000 compared to year before, and the number of births reached approximately 810,000, a record low since records began in 1899.
The Japanese economy has been in a slump for a long period of time, and COVID-19 added another worry to the trend of people being reluctant to get married and have children. The declining birthrate is a problem that could threaten the foundations of social and economic activity, so there is an urgent need to create a suitable environment for raising children.
The FPCJ invited Dr. Miho Iwasawa, Director of the Department of Population Dynamics Research at the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, to speak on population dynamics and the future of Japan.
