Abstract

Life expentancy in Japan rose at an unprecedented rate in the years following World War II. By around 1980, Japan had attained its current position of world leader in terms of average lenght of life. However, after catching and then surpassing other countries, the pace of mortality decline in Japan now appears to be converging toward international trends.
