Research and Statistics Department
Bank of Japan
The Research and Statistics Department of the Bank of Japan will relocate the data of real exports and real imports from the BOJ Time-Series Data Search to the Research Data section of the Bank's website and release them as "Developments in Real Exports and Real Imports" with enhanced data.
The data will be located at
HOME > Research and Studies > Research Data > Developments in Real Exports and Real Imports
In addition to (1) the existing time-series data of real exports and real imports, (2) the time-series data of real exports broken down by region and by goods will be released as research data.
As for the release schedule, (1) will, in principle, be released at 2:00 p.m. on the same day as the release of the Ministry of Finance's "Trade Statistics (Provisional)," with the first release scheduled on February 18, 2016, and (2) will, in principle, be released at 2:00 p.m., three business days after the release of "Trade Statistics (Provisional)." These release schedules are subject to change.
Concurrently, the research data will be revised at the timing of the release of "Trade Statistics (Provisional)" in the following month to reflect "Trade Statistics (Detailed)." Also, the real trade balance will no longer be released as an index compiled with the base year as 100. Instead, it will be released as real trade balance per real GDP three business days after the release of "Trade Statistics (Provisional)."
For the compilation method, please refer to Explanation of Real Exports and Real Imports.
