Japanese society in 2011: part 1 of 3 | 世論 What Japan Thinks

[yframe url=’’]

Citizens of this collectivist nation think their fellow-citizens are not civic-minded enough and need to have more of it pushed on them.  The politicians just got handed a gift with this survey.

Note the false dichotomy of question 3, ” Given the two opinions “One should focus more on country and society” and “Satisfying one’s personal lifestyle is a more important view””, which assumes that these two options are mutually exclusive. Are they, I wonder?

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.

When Japanese want to be flyjin | 世論 What Japan Thinks

Jumping on the bandwagon, indeed! This survey has nothing to do with the recent earthquake, tsunami, or nuclear crisis. It is just a survey of homesick Tokyoites!

The title here is just a poor excuse to try to jump on the flyjin bandwagon, in this survey from goo Ranking into when people who’ve moved to Tokyo want to swiftly return back home.


Between the 23rd and 26th of March 2011 1,070 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-base questionnaire. 53.4% of the sample were female, 10.2% in their teens, 13.1% in their twenties, 24.7% in their thirties, 23.7% in their forties, 13.3% in their fifties, and 15.0% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

Q: After moving to Tokyo, when do you get that feeling that you want to swiftly return home? (Sample size=1,070)

Over 90% of Japanese have donated cash for Tohoku|世論 What Japan Thinks

The latest survey reported on by iShare was a short look at actions to help towards revitalisation of Tohoku following last month’s earthquake.


On the first of April 2011 853 members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 60.8% of the sample were male, 5.5% in their twenties, 47.5% in their thirties, and 47.0% in their forties,

If you haven’t given cash, or want to give some more, here is my usual list of charities. I personally think volunteering is the best way to help in the future, and it’s what I’d like to do most myself.
