The inflow population of the Ku-area of Tokyo declined 6.7 percent.

- The population inflow into the Ku-area of Tokyo from other municipalities for work or schooling was 3.44 million (44.3 percent of those for whom the Ku-area of Tokyo is the place of work or schooling), of which 2.84 million (36.5 percent) were inflow from other prefectures. The inflow population of the Ku-area of Tokyo declined by 250,000 or 6.7 percent from 1995, the first drop since 1960, when surveys on places of work or schooling began.

All three prefectures showed a decline from 1995 (8.0, 4.3 and 7.5 percent, respectively). (Table 2-1, Figures 2-1 and 2-2)
