Notes on the statistical tables

About results of the labour force survey
  1. The benchmark population for the estimate was revised to the 2005 Census-based population estimates in January-March 2007 (refer to appendix 3)(PDF:83KB).
  2. Along with the revision of Japan Standard Industrial Classification (JSIC, Mar. 2002), the data are shown by New Standard Industrial Classification from the January 2003 survey results.
  3. Attention needs to be paid when comparing the change over the year because of the postal service privatization on 1 October 2007.
Notes on the use
  1. Figures may not add up to totals because figures are rounded to ten thousand or "unclassifiable / not reported" is included in totals.
  2. Figures for "change", "percentage of change", "percentage distribution", etc. are calculated from the figures rounded to ten thousand.
  3. "0" indicates that the figure is less than half of the given unit.
  4. "-" indicates that the figure does not exist.
  5. "*" indicates that the percentage is not computed because the denominator is too small (less than 100 thousand).
