Japan Statistics

In an ongoing campaign intended to both frighten and influence the nation's youth, the Japanese government has released a study asserting that 2.76 million Japanese are estimated to have used illegal drugs.

That is 2.9% of the country's population.

The drugs included in the survey were cannabis, stimulants, ecstasy, cocaine, and heroine.

There was nothing in the report about alcohol or tobacco use.

In order to maintain its current population of 125 million, Japan would need to have net migration of 381,000 people per year for 50 years. That is a total of 17 million immigrants.

To keep its working-age population at 1995 levels, Japan would need to have net migration of 609,000 migrants per year for 50 years. That would total 33 million new residents from overseas.
