Population Decline

On February 26, 2016, the Statistics Bureau of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications released the preliminary population count results of the 2015 Census. Japan’s population declined for the first time since the census began in 1920. It is expected that the population will not increase rapidly in the future, and Japan has entered a society with a declining population. And according to projections by an American university, the world’s population will peak at 9.7 billion in 2064 and then begin to decline. Japan is moving 50 years ahead of the world. From now on, the population will increase rapidly in Africa, but the world’s population will decrease in 40 years. I am sure that mankind will overcome this with many new technologies.–
