Coming of age 2011 according to Macromill: part 1 of 3

Do you feel relaxed about Japan's future? graph of japanese statisticsTo follow up on my previous survey from O-Net and Rakuten, here is a pretty massive survey from Macromill Research looking at coming of age in 2011 – it was released on the 7th of January but didn’t appear in their feed until the 28th. This will be presented in three parts.

Demographics

Over the 21st and 22nd of December 2010 500 members of the Macromill monitor group born in 1990 or 1991 who would be coming of age in 2011 completed a private internet-based questionnaire. The sample was exactly 50:50 male and female.

Not surprising in Q5 top of the desired jobs is working for the government – salaries are pretty good even at the local level, little overtime, and very little chance of being made redundant.

    Simply gotta improve the birthrate!
    Never want to see the society turn into nothing but senior citizens and that young people would be like an endangered species or even extinction
    Come on Japan where`s your brain!
