How often do you interact with people in your neighbourhood? graph of japanese statistics[part 1] [part 2] [part 3]

The Cabinet Office Japan recently carried out a survey into society.

Demographics

Between the 20th of January and the 6th of February 2011 10,000 people aged 20 or older selected at random from residency registers from all over the country were approached for interview and 6,338 people agreed to a face-to-face interview. 53.8% of the sample were female, 7.9% in their twenties, 14.0% in their thirties, 16.6% in their forties, 17.2% in their fifties, 23.4% in their sixties, 15.7% in their seventies, and 5.4% aged eighty or older.

I’d be in the “not really” category in the pie chart above. I of course greet everyone in our building when I meet them in the common spaces, and there’s a few other people, but it all gets back to my anti-social gitness, I suppose!
