Program for Constructing Data Infrastructure for the Humanities and Social Sciences
The Institute of Economic Research, Hitotsubashi University is carrying out a project related to government statistics, as a contracted project under the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science program Constructing Data Infrastructure for the Humanities and Social Sciences. Through achievements including development of a database of government statistical data covering the long term, development of metadata such as information on survey questionnaires, and organization of aggregated data from government statistical questionnaires and related processing technologies (e.g., tailor-made aggregation, historical statistics, industrial structure databases, and databases for international comparison), as well as translation of these data to English and publishing them domestically and internationally while also improving the usability of individual data, this project will develop a comprehensive system to promote the use and utilization by the domestic and international research communities of government statistical data and other aggregated and processed data.
