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 to conduct due to budgetary restrictions.

This is the 69th survey. This survey incorporates questions unique to Shin Joho Center that are repeated regularly, and some items allow longitudinal comparison. The contents of this survey include political philosophy, hopes for the future, future outlook, concerns about daily life, and public opinion surveys.
