30,000 households in Tokyo moved from 311 to 10/1/2013 “being worried about living in the disaster area”, surveyed by Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
This is the same number as Fukushima prefecture, which is the highest number in Japan.
It counts the households that moved due to 311, but didn’t have their houses physically destroyed. It strongly suggests the highest number of households in Tokyo decided to move due to radioactive contamination caused by Fukushima accident. At least it became clear that these 30,000 households considered Tokyo as “the disaster area”.
Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications didn’t announce the specific data of the number of the households that moved within Tokyo and moved out of Tokyo for some reason. It therefore can include the households that moved from hotspot to less contaminated area inside Tokyo.
Another chart reads 11,000 households moved out of Tokyo, whereas 9,000 households moved in due to Fukushima accident.
It can be concluded that the population of the households in Tokyo came into the decreasing trend for the nuclear accident.
However because the testees were sampled by the ministry, the actual decreasing rate of Tokyo households can be worse than announced by this survey.Iori Mochizuki You read this now because we’ve been surviving until today.
