The creation of such a demographic structure clustered around older workers within ﬁrms is the result of both demographic and economic factors. Broad demographic shifts have resulted in an ageing of the population and a shrinking of the birth rate. Further, members of the baby boom generation – those born between 1947 and 1949 in Japan, and employed en masse during the economic boom years in the 1960s and early 1970s – were aged over 50 by the late 1990s. Finally, the oil crisis curbed employment of the succeeding generations.
CONCLUSION This chapter brieﬂy studied the eﬀect of ageing on employment in the Japanese labor market, examining in particular the unemployment rate at the macro economic level and employment adjustment at the establishment level. The former speciﬁcally focused on the demographic shifts toward ageing labor forces in the overall economy and attempted to capture the extent to which the labor supply shifts aﬀected the unemployment rate. It is common in the United States that ageing itself contributes to a lowering of the unemployment rate, as it reduces the proportion of young workers whose propensity to be unemployed is relatively high.
