A New Converter for Establishments from Japan's Current Survey of Production and Census of Manufactures: 2005-2009 (Japanese)


  • KONISHI Yoko


In this paper, we construct a new converter that creates panel data based on all establishments subject to the Current Survey of Production (CSP) and the Census of Manufactures (CM) conducted by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry during the period 2005 to 2009. We link establishments surveyed in the CSP to those in the CM via establishment codes and aggregation of names, addresses, and zip codes. The matching rate was about 89%, of which about 97% are matched on a one-to-one basis. The converter will enable us to combine detailed production data provided by the CSP with comprehensive, establishment-level production activity data for use in economic analysis including that of productivity. However, because CSP data are monthly and item-based while those of the CM are annual and plant-based, careful steps need to be taken in linking responses to the two surveys to create matched data for use in empirical research.
