Poverty in Japan is at a record high. According to the Health, Labor, and Welfare Ministry's 2012 Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions, 16.3% of people in Japan aged 17 or younger are living in poverty. That is up from 10.9% in 1985.
The average yearly income of single mother households is 2,434,000 yen ($20,649), which is less than half of the national average.
