Chronological Lifestyle Survey

Large-scale and long-running time series observation of people

The chronological lifestyle survey on the Japanese people, which the Institute has conducted every second year since 1992, enables time series observation of sei-katsu-sha through a broad-ranging survey that includes around 1,400 items covering their recent sentiments, attitudes to life, views toward society and more. The results of this research can be viewed on the Japanese language Seikatsu Teiten website in various ways, including by category, by graph and by target.
