Report summary: Despite being a developed industrialized country, Japan underperforms when it comes to promoting gender equality. Japan scored a 5.91 out of 10 for the GCPI, placing it in the lower-middle of the Maturing band. Japan’s rapidly changing demographics, specifically its falling birth rate, aging population, decreasing workforce, and declining population, have created an increasing need for eldercare and growing demand for migrant workers to fill strategic gaps in the labor force. In the present day, the vast majority of domestic workers in Japan are live-out migrant workers. Japan performs slightly better in Sub-Index B with a score of 6.24, compared to its performance in Sub-Index A where it receives a score of 5.58.
