Originally Published on:

This visualization by Nikkei Big Data shows how senior workers see a steep decrease in their wages when they cross the 60 years-old threshold. This holds true in most industries and provinces.

Select a year and a province (filters at the top right) and see how salary level (y-axis) varies with the age range (color coding) in various industries (x-axis) in the box-and-whisker plot. A map at the bottom gives geographic context.
