That's a lot of people missing, I propose a government Pannel to discuss this and come back with ideas that involve copious amounts of complicated paperwork that solves nothing. It's an obvious fix.

There are numbers for Japan because the issue is taken seriously at the national level. When the same report came out last year, I looked for comparable data for the US and the UK. It does not exist because the issue is left up to local authorities.

For good measure, I checked with an American expert on this issue. He had had the same experience. Good data for Japan; almost nothing for other countries.
