Japan Child Panel Survey

I am a principal investigator for the Japan Child Panel Survey (JCPS), the first longitudinal data of children with measures of both cognitive and non-cognitive skills in Japan, which started in 2010 as a supplement to the Japan Household Panel Data (JHPS) at Keio.

JCPS aims to examine the association between changes in society and child rearing by conducting a survey on the conditions of child rearing at home and the children’s learning. By regularly conducting the JCPS on the same child from the same household and by analyzing this data together with the data from the Japan Household Panel Survey (JHPS) and Keio Household Panel Survey (KHPS), researchers can examine the complex association between the domestic and surrounding circumstances and children’s development.
