Statistics

Japan's childhood poverty rate is 13.9%, according to 2016 data from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.

More than half of those children - those 18 or younger - live in a household with just one parent.

That rate is an improvement on the previous year's but remains above the OECD average.
