Statistics

Fifty-one percent of Japanese support the idea that husband should be the main breadwinner and wives should stay home and do housework.

More than half of those who replied in the Cabinet poll support the "traditional" family arrangement,  a rise of 10.3% over a 2009 poll.

Interestingly, those in their 20s showed the highest rise, which was 19.3%. 55.7% of people in their 20s support this.
