Japan’s Internal affairs Ministry has released a report on April 1, 2018, compared to the previous year’s the young people decreased to 1,70,000. On the other hand, ages population is enhancing.
At Present the Japan Population is 12.6 crores, in that population only 32 lakhs people belong to the 12to 14 age group.18.9 percent in the US, 16.8 percent in China and 30.8 percent in India, while Japan has a population of 12.3 percent.

Japan’s attitude towards immigrants does not change, even if it facing a difficult situation. They are not allowing the immigrants to increase the population. In the United States, 7% foreign population but in Japan, immigration is only 1.3%. There is also a shortage of workers here because of the low population. Another reason is gender dislocation.
In Japan, there is a 25 percent difference between male and female payments. Furthermore, Japanese women are not going to handle some kind of duties due to child protection, sexual harassment, and inequality. To reduce human resources shortage, by 2050, Japan must be careful to ensure that three-quarters of the population of the country is young.
