Public Data

  1. Hi Carmen,

    Back in my dissertation days, I looked at Eurostat data: http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/portal/page/portal/eurostat/home/ as well as data from the Japanese statistics bureau: http://www.stat.go.jp/english/
    While in Japan, I could copy many statistics at a more detailed level. Some of these data are made available through E-Stat, such as these on the labour force: http://www.stat.go.jp/english/data/roudou/index.htm
    I am certain that many other sources exist.
    The most difficult part is trying to compare data between data sets. The definitions differ to a large extent. Not only between sets, but also within datasets (based different intervals for example). For me, the main reason to ask for assistance from a well know Japanese researcher to obtain a consistent dataset.

    Best regards, Paul
