Dataset overview  
Statistics name Labour Force Survey  Detail
Dataset category0 Labour Force Survey 
Dataset category1 Basic Tabulation
Description of Dataset category1 Since 1982, the benchmark population for calculating the results of the Labour Force Survey is revised every five years because the Population Estimates are revised every five years according to the release of the latest results of the Population Census conducted every five years.
Responding to the revision, in order to remove the gaps, data from October 2005 through December 2016 have been adjusted to comparable time-series data (the intercensal-level adjustment data or the retroactive adjustment data).Adjusted figures are presented in "Historical data" and "Preliminary report".
On the other hand, figures on the Statistical tables and databases are not adjusted ones and remain the same as of the time they released.
Therefore, the figures of "Historical data" for those periods are different from the ones in the annual report published in each year or on Statistical tables and databases.
Dataset category2 Whole Japan
Dataset category3 Monthly
