Japan is the world’s tenth most populated country. Its size can be attributed to fast growth rates experienced during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. After having experienced net population loss over a number of years due to falling birth rates and almost no net immigration, and despite having one of the highest life expectancies in the world at 81.25 years of age as of 2006, Japan’s population rose for a second year in a row in 2009, mainly because more Japanese returned to Japan than left.
