-Issue Is How to Transition from Participation to Active Contribution
The percentage of female workers in Japan’s labor force is rising. Looking ahead, as the population declines and the trends toward smaller families and demographic aging continue, hopes are rising for the contribution of female workers. Under the “Japan Revitalization Strategy,” goals have been set to raise the percentage of women in the 25 to 44 age category who have jobs to 73% by 2020, in order to smooth out the “M-shaped” age curve for working women. Progress has already been made toward the smoothing out of the M-shaped age curve, and, with the current level, attaining the goal appears to be realizable. However, even if this goal is attained, the number of working women in the 25 to 44 age category may decline.
