Abstract 127,770,794. The number is the result of a very small increase of 1,284 since October 1, 2006, when the population was 127,769,510. The rate of population growth was 0.001 % or practically zero. The population of Japan is now entering the phase of long-term decline. The population growth rate was negative in 2005 for the first time since the 19th century. Although the population growth rate has fluctuated around zero since 2005, it is predicted that negative growth rates will become dominant and the rate of population decline will accelerate. The official population projection by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research published in 2006 projected that the population of Japan will be 95 million in 2050, which is a 25.5 % decline from 128 million in 2005. This implies that, although the population growth rate is practically zero presently, the aver-age annual growth rate between 2005 and 2050 will be approximately-0.7%.
