Researcher second-most popular job for boys


Researcher is now the second-most popular job among Japanese boys, a nationwide survey of 1,100 elementary school and preschool children found on Jan. 6.

Soccer player remained the top job for the seventh consecutive year, followed by police officer or detective, according to the annual survey by Dai-ichi Life Insurance Co.

Regarding the surging popularity of researchers, the insurer cited Japan's recent Nobel Prize winners as a potential cause.

"Japanese nationals winning Nobel Prizes successively may have had an effect," an official of the insurance company said. (Kyodo)
