Instruction for Depositing Data

    The Center for Social Research and Data Archives at the Institute of Social Science, the University of Tokyo, established the Social Science Japan Data Archive (SSJDA) for the purpose of supporting social science research on Japan. This archive collects micro data with questionnaires used in various social and statistical surveys, and offers them for secondary use for academic purposes. The SSJDA has made such data available since 1998. (see List of Data)

    The SSJDA is currently asking other research organizations to join us in this effort by depositing their micro data in our archive. We hope that many organizations will understand our purpose and collaborate with us. If you or your organization is interested in depositing micro data, please contact us. We will be vary glad to talk with you for greater detail.

SSJDA offers micro data to researchers and students with the depositor's permission for data use.

SSJDA always converts the micro data into a form which does not allow identification of individual respondents.

In principle, SSJDA does not offer the micro data to researchers and students without the depositor's permission.

Before the researchers and students are provided with data, they are required to sign the following Agreement which specifies the conditions for using the data.
