MetLife-supported EIU study highlights need for education on health, wealth and quality of life

Tokyo, October 26, 2017 – MetLife Insurance K.K. (MetLife Japan) announced today the release of a report compiled by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU; the research and analysis division of The Economist Group). The report, which is supported by MetLife, addressed perceptions of health, wealth, and quality of life (QOL) in Japan and seven other economies.

Titled “Reality check-ups: Knowledge gaps in health, wealth, and quality of life,” the report was released today to coincide with the Economist Japan Summit 2017. The study surveyed 1,600 people across eight economies – Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, and the United States –with questions such as how long respondents can expect to live, what diseases they should be most concerned about, and where their country ranks in terms of retirement income. Respondents’ answers were then compared to “reality” – what citizens of their countries typically experience in these areas based on data and forecasts from the EIU, World Health Organization, World Bank and other credible sources..

While the answers of Japanese people were most in line with the benchmark data, with an average accuracy rate of 47%, there is clearly much room for improvement. For example, 48% of Japanese survey respondents underestimated how long they are likely to live after retirement. While the average lifespan continues to rise, there is currently a 10-to-15-year gap between longevity and healthy longevity , according to a study by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. Retired Japanese are now facing the new challenge of remaining healthy throughout their post-retirement lives.
Sachin N. Shah, Chairman, President and CEO, MetLife Japan, said, “The report suggests that people lack sufficient knowledge of the health and financial risks that accompany ageing. Private, public and cross-industry partnerships can provide education and insight that bridge the knowledge gap so that people can lead healthier and more fulfilled lives.”
