Survey of Municipal Councilors on Policy and Social Awareness

We are pleased to announce that we have received a research grant from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as part of the JSPS Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (A) (General)) “An Empirical Study of Policy Views on Equality in Contemporary Japan: Interaction between Citizens and Elites” (Research Project No. 22H00046, PI: Professor Yoshihiko Takenaka, University of Tsukuba). This survey is part of the “Municipal Councilor Questionnaire on Policy and Social Consciousness” (Research Project No. 22H00046).
The purpose of this survey is to find out what councilors think about equality and fairness and how these are reflected in their policies, as the correction of disparities and inequalities has become an important social and political issue.
The survey is conducted by Japan Research Center, Inc., an organization specializing in public opinion and statistical surveys. All responses will be quantified and statistically processed, so we will never release your name in connection with the content of your answers.
We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
