【Ended】IMPORTANT: Population Census (October, 2015)


Information about conducting the Population Census

As of October 1st, 2015, the Japanese Government will be conducting a Population Census. The Population Census is a statistical survey which is conducted according to the law and covers everyone living in Japan, regardless of nationality. You are legally required to respond.

Your responses will not be used in any way for immigration control, police investigations, or other such purposes.

Starting in the middle of September, census workers will visit all households and distribute IDs to fill out the survey data via the internet. We ask for your co-operation in answering the survey online.

At the end of September, surveys slips will be distributed to those households that did not answer the survey on-line.
The data collected from the Population Census will be used as a baseline for city planning and other measures which benefit foreign residents as well as Japanese citizens.

Don’t forget. You are a member of Japanese society.
