March 2004

The Japan Industry Productivity Database (JIP Database) was originally compiled by Kyoji Fukao (Hitotsubashi University), Tsutomu Miyagawa (Gakushuin University), Hiroki Kawai (Keio University), Tomohiko Inui (Nippon University), several economists at ESRI, and graduate students from Keio, Hitotsubashi, Tsukuba and other universities as part of the ESRI (Economic and Social Research Institute, Cabinet Office, Government of Japan) research project "Japan's Potential Growth.."

The database contains annual information on 84 sectors, including 49 non-manufacturing sectors, from 1970 to 1998. These sectors cover the whole Japanese economy. The database includes detailed information on factor inputs, annual nominal and real input-output tables, and some additional statistics, such as R&D stock, capacity utilization rate, Japan's international trade statistics by trade partner, inward and outward FDI, etc., at the detailed sectoral level.

ESRI and the HI-STAT project (A 21st-Century COE Program, Research Unit for Statistical Analysis in the Social Sciences) team of Hitotsubashi University are collaborating now on (1) the extension of the period covered from 1970-98 to 1970-2001 or 1970-2002, (2) the revision from 1968 SNA base to 1993 SNA base, and (3) revisions of labor input and other data.

The database contains the following variables. (Replace "variables" with: "data"/"types of data"/"information". Either one of these would be fine. I've ranked them in the order of my preference.)

Are these the headings of the JIP tables that I checked in November? If so, could you please make the same changes there.
