ABSTRACT

The rate of aging in Japan is fast compared to western countries. South Korea is expected to become one of the highest aged societies, almost at the same level as Japan. This rapid aging of the labor force may require different labor policies for East Asian women. This paper tries to find the determinants of getting married and parenting of young women in age between 20s and 30s of Japan, by analysing the data of family life, the social environment in order to find the factor associated with declining a birthrate. The findings of this study indicate that maternity leave and the level of sharing household chores have a positive influence on employment of Japanese women. However, a children’s allowance program has a little influence on the childbirth rate.
