Director-General for Policy Planning (Statistical Standards)

The statistical system of the Japanese government is decentralized, in that each ministry produces statistics for its own policy purposes.

The Director-General for Policy Planning (Statistical Standards), being responsible for coordinating the statistical activities of different ministries, plans basic policy considerations for official statistics, examines statistical survey plans for approval, establishes statistical standards, and coordinates international statistical affairs.
