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 62nd 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 knowledge about life insurance and hopes for the future.
