The Japanese silver generation is more important than 'happiness'.
According to Hakuhodo Life Research Institute, founded by Japanese advertising company Hakuhodo, 40.6% of Japanese silver households said that money is important now. In contrast, 'happiness' was only 15.7%. The study was conducted in February of last year for 700 people aged 60 to 74 living in the metropolitan area. It is conducted in the same manner every 10 years since 1986.
Twenty years ago, the Japanese silver generation was happy first. In the same survey in 1986, 'happiness' was 31.1%, exceeding 28.1%. However, the results of 1996 were reversed and the gap widened since then.
For the Japanese silver generation, life is daunting. According to a survey of last year, 46.7% of the elderly responded that "the future is dark." Haku-hodo said, "The aging life has been long. However, in the future, the elderly people in a dark situation, realistic pursuit of money in the desire to look at the heart, "he analyzed.

The amount of allowance for a month in 2006 is 2006. In 1996, it was higher than this, at 34,450 yen.
