After a month since the East Japan massive earthquake, Japanese research companies Research-and-Development and Cross Marketing jointly conducted “Survey on Metropolitan Residents Attitude toward Life and Consumption,” and the result was revealed last week.
The survey was conducted between April 8 and April 11, 2011 with 3088 residents in the Metropolitan area (within 40 km), who are out of 4260 adults (age between 18 and 75) who responded an online survey on attitude toward life conducted in October 2010.
The chart is about “practice of refraining from consuming.”
According the result of “Survey on Fear and Anxiety about Future,” about 60% of the residents answered “personal life went back to normal as that of before the earthquake,” while about 60% of the residents think that “it will take time for the society to go back normal under the influence of the earthquake.”
The followings are other fears that the metropolitan residents hold now.
“The economy goes down and life will be rugged because of the recession;” 43.7% of the residents think so strongly, and 46.3% of them think so a little.
“Lack of electricity will put us to an inconvenient life;” 36.6% of the residents think so strongly, and 53.3% of them think so a little.
“Radioactivity will harm the health of me and my family;” 21.9% of the residents think so strongly, and 49.5% of them think so a little.
There will be more results coming up in this week.
