    About the Population Census

    The census is carried out in Japan once every 5 years. It is a survey used to determine the number of people living in Japan. The census this year (2020) will be carried out in October.
    We ask that foreign nationals also provide responses. The results of the census are used for things that impact everyday life, such as disaster prevention measures and planning new convenience store locations, making your daily life safer and more convenient.
    Online responses are available.
