According to the Japan Times, the previous survey conducted in October 2011 showed that people who gave priority to spiritual fulfillment has increased by 2.6 points, and is the highest since the poll began in 1972.

"Since the Great East Japan Earthquake (in March 2011) there has been an increased tendency among people to place importance on human bonds and relations with family members," a Cabinet Office official said.

When the survey asked people where policy measures were needed the most, almost 66.5 percent cited 'the economy'.

Almost 66.1 percent people said that they wanted social security services, such as health care and pensions, the report said.

Asked what people wanted to focus on, almost 37.7 percent people said that they wanted to engage in 'leisure and recreational activities' followed by 'income' at 33.3 percent and 'assets and savings' at 32.2 percent, the report added.
