Regional Econometric Models of Japan

  • Takao Fukuchi

Abstract

The construction and use of regional econometric models in Japan started in the 1960’s. The estimate of prefectural income started in the previous decade and every prefecture started to publish its findings after 1956. Preparation of a statistical basis for model work was improved greatly. The government published the new ten-years-plan for 1960–70, which was called an income-doubling plan, and the Japanese became gradually planning — minded. On the other hand, many regional problems became important social issues, and the central and local government felt a great need to prepare adequate policies based upon consolidate methodologies. All these factors called for the construction and use of regional econometric models, and contributed to the rapid diffusion of this planning technique.
