During the term of this project(ie., April, 2006-March, 2008), we had had 13 meetings on economic statistics(Economic Statistics Research Meetings, ESRM henceforth). Among them are : Use of the Japanese Population Census as a micro data(June, 2006) ; Use of private statistics for the Business Frame in Japan(October, 2006) ; Use of information from the National Tax Agency in the Japanese official statistics(May, 2007) ; Preparation of 2010 Population Census(October 2007) ; Recoding of and Access to US Population Census(October, 2007) ; Reforming the Japanese Statistical Law and data archive in the future(November, 2007) ; and Data archive in UK(November, 2007). In addition, we discussed nonsampling errors and panel surveys both of which are particularly useful for reuse of micro data through data archive. Moreover, we had two notable conferences jointly with the Japan Statistical Society : entitled The Japanese Official Statistics in the Future (September 2006, Tohoku University) and The Current Situation and Future Challenges of the Japanese Official Statistical System (September, 2007., Kobe University). Both of the conferences gathered more than 100 participants and provided useful keynote speeches and discussions about the rapidly changing Japanese official statistical system.
Other than these 13 ESRMs, we had published 29 papers and made 10 presentations during April, 2006 to March, 2008.
