This regional report uses facts and figures to narrate a story of country-level population and worker health for China, India, Japan and South Korea. The selected Asian countries will need creative solutions to address non-communicable diseases that make up the majority of the mortality burden. Comparing data across markets gives companies a better understanding of local challenges in a regional context. This data has relevance for corporate people planning efforts (e.g., maximizing productivity, promoting workplace engagement, talent pipeline management, etc.) and employee benefits administration. Topics in the report include population size and growth rate; the aging population; life expectancy and causes of mortality; burden of non-communicable disease; maternal health indicators; and behavioral reasons ((e.g., tobacco, alcohol, overweight and obesity) for poor health.
