  • Outlets for which the ratio of part-time workers and "arubaito" (temporary workers) is less than 10% are in the majority.
  • In outlets except general retail outlets, the ratio of part-time workers and "arubaito" (temporary workers) is high.

(1) Looking at the rate of surveyed outlets by ratio of part-time workers and "arubaito" (temporary workers), the group of “less than 10%” is the highest at 56.5%. Compared to the previous survey, the rate is almost the same.

Table 5.1.1 Number and rate of surveyed outlets by ratio of part-time workers and arubaito (temporary workers)

 

(2) Looking at the ratio of part-time workers and "arubaito" (temporary workers) by type of outlet, in the category of “general retail outlet”, the ratio of “less than 10%” is the highest at 62.8%. On the other hand, concerning “supermarket”, “volume sales specialty store” and “drug store”, the ratio of “50% to less than 70%” is the highest at 33.2%, 32.6% and 32.6% respectively, and for “convenience store” and “cooperative store”, that of “70% or more” is the highest at 51.2% and 53.7% respectively.

5-2 Difference of price by ratio of part-time workers and "arubaito" (temporary workers)

  • At outlets for which the ratio of part-time workers and "arubaito" (temporary workers) is high, some clothing items and food stuffs are low-priced.

Concerning the common 100 items, by comparison of average prices between outlets for which the ratio of part-time workers and "arubaito" (temporary workers) is “70% or more” and those for which the ratio is “less than 10%”, at the former outlets some clothing items are over 20% lower-priced than average prices, and some food stuffs are over 10% lower-priced than the average. This tendency is the same as that of large-scale outlets, but at small-scale outlets the items over 20% lower-priced are limited.
