This data is a tabulation of the forestland and forestry activities of the entities by entity type and prefecture, based on the microdata (entity candidate list and management entity questionnaire) of the four times "Census of Agriculture and Forestry" from 2000 to 2015 conducted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF). By integrating the entity candidate list and the survey result of the management entity, the forestland and forestry activities by the entire entities are tabulated. The data was obtained from the MAFF Statistics Department by the application procedure of the Statistics Act.
The "description" sheet describes items used in this data. The types of entities were classified into household, organized, school and experiment center, undeterminable, and missing for all entities, and among them, household with 1ha or more forestland were classified into farmers and non-farmers. In addition, the management entities were divided into forestry management entities and non-forestry management entities.
The "Forestland" sheet is a compilation of the number of entities and the owned forest area by its size.
The "Forestry" sheet is a compilation of the number of entities who have carried out forestry operation (forestation, weeding, etc., thinning, final cutting), forest product sales, and material production, and the area or material production volume. In addition, the implementation rate and area ratio of forestry activities were calculated using the corresponding number of entities and forest area owned by entity type, size of forest area, and prefecture as the denominator.
For data and aggregation method, please see my manuscript. For the definition of entity type and the contents of the survey items, please refer to "Overview" and the "Qustionnaire" of the Census of Agriculture and Forestry (MAFF).
