Details We have constructed the database for the survey of Agricultural Household in the pre-war period (1931-41). The survey covers the same households over time, so that we can construct the panel data.Using this panel data, we have conducted the modern economic analysis for agricultural households with the interdisciplinary nature. In particular, asset accumulation and human capital investment of agricultural households are examined comprehensively from the view points of agricultural economics, development economics and economic history. We have obtained different results from the previous studies in development economics and economic history of the pre-war Japan. These results are presented in the academic conferences and published in refereed journals.
