Study populations

Japan, in 2016, had an estimated population of 126m with 13% (16m) under the age of 15 years and 27% (34m) over the age of 65. Due to Japan’s low fertility rates, by 2050, the population in Japan is expected to decrease by 15% and those aged 65 years or older will represent 36% (39m) of the total population.

Alongside the ageing population, diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 7.2m people living with the condition and an estimated 3.4m undiagnosed cases.
