The 2000 National Survey on Family and Economic Conditions (NSFEC) was collected by the Keio University Center of Excellence (COE) program. It is a national, two-stage stratified probability sample of Japanese men and women aged 20-49. The survey focused on aspects of early life course such as educational objectives and employment, as well as marriage, family life, child rearing, household management, and gender roles.

Date of Collection:
Unit of Observation: individual
Universe: A national, two-stage stratified probability sample of Japanese men and women aged 20-49.
Data Types: survey data
Sample: Based on the 2000 Census tract distribution, 350 locales were randomly selected. Then, 20 individuals aged 20-49 were randomly selected within each locale, based on the registration of current domicile (jumin kihon daicho). Because one of the major objectives of the survey was to collect information on early life course, individuals aged 20-39 were selected at twice the rate of those aged 40-49.
Mode of Data Collection: survey questionnaire
Response Rates: A total of 4,482 usable questionnaires were returned, a response rate of 64 percent. The response rate was particularly low for those aged 20-24 (55 percent). For the remainder, the response rate was 71 percent.
