Edited extract from the December 07 newsletter of the Japan Society for
Dying With Dignity:-

The membership of the Japan Society for Dying With Dignity stands at
121,319 as of December 6, 2007. Having surpassed the coveted 100,000
mark that was reached in December 2002, our society has continued to
steadily increase membership.

There are two major characteristics. The percentage of female members
is overwhelmingly large (2 females for 1 male) and half of the members
are 75 or older.

The lopsided male-female ratio is said to be related to the fact that
women live six years longer than men.
