Based on the results of this Census, in June 2016, MIC and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry conduct the “2016 Economic Census for Business Activity”, this time with the focus on identifying the activities of these establishments and enterprises during 2015, in cooperation with many other governmental Ministries and Agencies.

2012 Economic Census for Business Activity

The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) in July 2009 conducted the “2009 Economic Census for Business Frame,” the aim of which was to identify the establishments and enterprises in Japan. Based on the results of this Census, in February 2012, MIC and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry conducted the “2012 Economic Census for Business Activity”, this time with the focus on identifying the activities of these establishments and enterprises during 2011, in cooperation with many other governmental Ministries and Agencies. The results from this Census are intended for use by business people since they also cover business administration, and not only government and researchers.
When we conduct the “2012 Economic Census for Business Activity,” we integrated some of the major surveys, such as the “Establishment and Enterprise Census” and the “Survey on Service Industries,” into the new Census. Moreover, this new Census was to cover the question items contained in the “Census of Commerce in 2009” and the “Census of Manufactures 2011,” in order to reduce the burden on survey respondents.
