Supplementary notes

According to the English source, respondents were asked whether they agreed or disagreed with the following statement: "The husband is expected to work outside the home, while the wife is expected to take on domestic duties." The original Japanese version of the source showed that the question was asked regarding the agreement or disagreement with the gender role itself, instead of an assessment of public expectations. This nuance is not entirely reflected by the official translation.

Missing percentage points to 100 percent are probably due to rounding.
