Statistical Handbook of Japan (To Japanese Site)

The Statistical Handbook of Japan 2016 is designed to provide a clear and coherent overview of present-day Japan through statistics. It provides statistical tables, figures, maps, and photographs to portray conditions in modern-day Japan from a variety of perspectives, including demographics, economic and social trends, and culture. Most of the comments and statistical data for this purpose have been drawn from principal statistical publications available from government and other leading sources. The handbook is published annually in August or September.
