Outline of the Current Survey of Production - Japan

This document describes the aspects of the Current Survey of Production in Japan.

The Current Survey of Production has been conducted since 1948 on a monthly basis to monitor month-to-month changes in manufacturing and mining outputs in Japan and obtain basic data on the industries available for policymakers. The Current Survey of Production, the eleventh statistics designated according to the Statistics Law, is the only monthly survey that monitors industrial outputs in Japan. Since the first survey in 1948 it has been used by a range of government agencies, researchers, businesses, and other organizations and individuals. The survey covers around 1,800 items of goods among those under the charge of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. For the items, outputs, shipments, and inventories are reported. Raw materials, manufacturing facilities, and workforce used for the outputs are also surveyed. A survey period starts on the first day of a month and ends on the last day. Reports are available both in print and on the website of the METI.
