Details We construct the panel data base of agricultural households in the Pre-war Period Japan. We analyze agricultural household behavior from the viewpoints of economic history, agricultural economics and development economics. In particular, we investigate the debt problem in agricultural household in the pre-war period and the food control issues in the war-time. The results of these researches are presented at the academic conferences and published in academic journals. In the field of development economics, agricultural households in the current developing countries, facing various risks such as climate shock and commodity price volatility, create institutional arrangements that might resemble those functions in the pre-war Japan.
