Today, the Bank of Japan began to provide all long-term time-series data, up through the December 2008 Survey, of the Tankan (Short-Term Economic Survey of Enterprises in Japan) on "BOJ Time-Series Data Search" (hereafter the search page), a search application on the Bank's web site.
Some of the time-series data, which had been available only in text file format, are now provided on the search page, which enables users to specify and view/download the data they need.
Time-series data of the March 2009 Tankan will be provided on the search page on April 2, 2009 at 8:50 a.m. JST.
Time-series data in the previous text file format and supplemental data on a pre-revision "number of employees" basis compiled since the March 2004 Tankan will no longer be updated from the June 2009 Tankan (time-series data up through the March 2009 Tankan will be updated).1,2
From the March 2009 Tankan to the June 2010 Tankan, "Fixed Investment including Land Purchasing Expenses," "Software Investment," and "Software and Fixed Investment excluding Land Purchasing Expenses" will be compiled under the previous accounting standard for lease transactions and released as official figures. During the same period, figures compiled under the new accounting standard for lease transactions will also be released as reference data.3 Accordingly, the code numbers of such survey items for the search page will be changed or added as shown in the Appendix.
