Factors affecting labor force participation in Japan1: empirical study of labor supply of the elderly and females Hirotsugu Sakai and Hitoshi Asaoka 1. INTRODUCTION According to the ‘Projection of Japanese Population’ by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, the productive-age population of Japan, aged 15 to 64, will keep on decreasing due to the drastically decreasing fertility rate which reached its peak in 1995. The labor force population will decrease accordingly, and thus push down the potential growth of GDP.

Whereas it had taken substantially more time for Japanese firms to sound and reach agreement with labor unions and at the same time to realize personnel reduction in the past, from the historical view of Japanese industrial relations, the downsizing at the end of the 1990s and at the beginning of the new century appears unique. Regression Results A simple regression analysis can confirm the above interpretation. Using the microdata on the establishment survey, that is, the Employment Trend Survey conducted in 2000 by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the determinant of the employment growth rate is examined at the establishment level.

Especially considering the fact that the baby boomers born immediately after WWII mainly consisted of employees who will soon become ‘the elderly’, raising the labor force participation rate in the elderly is more urgent. In the first half of this chapter, we study the current working behavior of the elderly in Japan. We consider the conditions that help to promote the employment of various kinds of elderly worker. Our study is distinctive in that it compares the elderly’s intention to work and their actual working conditions using ordered probit models and Heckit procedures.
