Summary This is an omnibus Japan-wide survey that is carried out regularly, three times each year.

It is used to acquire data quickly and inexpensively if questions are too few or if a standalone survey is difficult due to budgetary restrictions.

This is the 52nd survey. The survey stored here incorporates questions unique to Shin Joho Center that are repeated regularly, and some items allow longitudinal comparison. The contents of this survey include interest in politics, political party supported, support for the cabinet, relocation of the capital, the problem of return of the Northern Territories, and the Japan–US Security Treaty.
