Japan is rapidly aging
The Japanese government said that the number of children in the country has dropped to a record level in the country's entire history, and the number of older people older than 65 has, on the contrary, increased.
He estimates that 12,8% of the Japanese population is younger than 15 years, while the elderly make up 25%.
Japan has one of the lowest rates of population growth in the world, and the ratio between young and old people threatens its further development, reports the BBC.
