Labor force participation and employment rates continue to fall in Japan. Unlike the US, their working age population has begun to decline recently. We are probably 12-15 away from that.
- Labor Force Participation rate is 59.4 percent, down 0.2 percent from March
- Employment to population ratio is 56.5 percent, also down 0.2 percent from March
- The working age population declined by 170,000 people during the month.
