Administration
JGSS-2016 was conducted from the beginning of February through April 2016. The fieldwork was entrusted to the Central Research Services Inc. (Chuo-Chosa-sha).
As for JGSS conducted before, JGSS-2016 used both interview and placement (self-administered) method for each respondent. For practical reasons the administrative order (i.e., whether to conduct the face-to-face interview before or after the questionnaire) was determined by the interviewer/ administrator depending on the circumstances of each case. In any case the administrative order was recorded for each respondent.

JGSS-2016 was conducted in collaboration with the Division of Sociology of Education, Graduate School of Education, Kyoto University. The project is financially assisted by JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number 15H03485 (PI: Hachiro Iwai), JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number 26245060 (PI: Noriko Iwai), Research Grant on Labor Issues (PI: Hachiro Iwai), and Osaka University of Commerce.
