Distribution of Yearly Household Incomes in Japan, 2013

Money

Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare issued the result of National Livelihood Survey 2014. According to it, the average yearly income of Japanese household was 5,289,000 yen ($44,700 €41,270) in 2013. In 2012, the average household income was 5,372,000 yen. We see that the people are getting poorer.

The median income was 4,150,000 ($35,075 €32,382). 61.2% of people live by the below average income.

In the survey, "income" includes taxes and social security charges. So the after-tax pay (take-home money) is less than "income".

The below shows the percentage distribution of yearly household incomes.
