Beginning from the March 2015 Tankan (Short-term Economic Survey of Enterprises in Japan), some items, currently published on the following day of release, will be included in the Tankan Summary published on the first release day.

Specifically, the classifications of "Manufacturing" and "Nonmanufacturing" will be added to the breakdowns of "Number of New Graduates Hired (All industries)" in 6. Employment and to the breakdowns of "Financial Position (All industries)," "Lending Attitude of Financial institutions (All industries)," and "Change in Interest Rate on Loans (All industries)" in 7. Corporate Finance.

Due to this addition, the tables on p. 6-7 in the Tankan Summary will be changed as shown in Appendix [PDF 27KB].
