Japanese Children Face Extinction
A frightening reality concerning the country’s children faces Japan according to researchers from Tohoku University Graduate School of Economics.
They’ve concluded Japan will have no children under the age of 15 by 3011 if current trends which saw Japan’s 2011 population of children under-15 fall by 300, 000 to 16.6 million.
The researchers have created a population clock that reflects the population of children using declining percentages released recently by Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
Assuming a similar decline year-over-year to that seen in 2011, the researchers set the clock to drop one child every 100 seconds leaving Japan with no children under the age of 15 by June 3011.
