Data Line-up of Region and Population

Construction Statistics by Region
Construction work orders, building starts, housing starts, etc., nationwide and by prefecture and municipality.
Comprehensive Regional Data
Regional data, such as square measure, population/household, industry, finance/income, life/culture, and housing price/land price. When a consolidation/merging of municipalities occurs, combined numerical data on pre-consolidation/pre-merging remains available. Data is available from the date NEEDS started recording data for an item and so you can do a retrospective search using pre-integration/pre-merging data on cities/towns/villages from year 1999 onward.
National Census Data
Data on population by gender, by 5-year age group, average age, and median duration excerpted from the National Census compiled by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC). The MIC conducts the National Census every 5 years, to compile data on Japanese population, industrial structure from the perspective of persons engaged by region.
Population Projections
Data on estimated populations by city, town, and village conducted in 2000 and 2005 by the Statistical Information Institute for Consulting and Analysis. The estimation is made by using cohort component projection method, on the premise that the mortality rate and migration by 5-year age group and by gender observed during the period between 2015 and 2040 and the fertility level will continue in the future at the same rate as those observed during the period.
Construction Statistics by Region
Data on various monthly/annual statistics on construction activities by region, derived from the "Monthly Statistics on Construction Activity including Construction Work Orders", "Housing Starts Statistics" compiled by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT).
