Abstract

Several problems have been identified in the method and results of the Monthly Labour Survey, which is one of the major economic statistics surveys conducted by the Government of Japan. This paper provides some context to the problems and discusses how we can identify such problems using published documents and data. The focus is on illegal sample discarding, misreported sampling scheme, misuse of sampling weight, biased estimation, and thoughtless alteration of the definition of “regular employee.”
