Excess mortality among the unmarried : a case study of Japan.
Recent research has demonstrated that mortality patterns by marital status in Japan are different from corresponding patterns in other industrialized countries.
Most notably, the magnitude of the excess mortality experienced by single Japanese has been staggering.
For example, estimates of life expectancy for the mid-1900s indicate that single Japanese men and women had life expectancies between 15 and 20 years lower than their married counterparts.
