Geo Note: Japan - Administrative areas [2013]
Thursday, 23 Apr 2020 14:54 ET
By Elizabeth Felton
Summary
February 2020 -- Data Buffet now carries a reference file for Japan administrative areas, as of 2013. (1 reference file)
Detail

For Japan, the first-level divisions are called Regions, and the second-level divisions are Prefectures. This file also contains a Prefecture to Metropolitan area mapping. We have synthesized administrative area information from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation of Japan (MLIT) and Japan Statistics Bureau (JSB) into coherent lists ("geo code vintage") at the three levels, which you can use to answer questions like "at time T, what are the component prefecture P of region R?" 

Reference files

The reference file is an Excel workbook with a separate worksheet for each geo type, tabulating (as applicable) the area name, type, Data Buffet geo code, and parent administrative area.
