The proposed project, comprising Japan’s leading researchers on productivity, seeks to remedy this situation in collaboration with statistical agencies and in conjunction with ongoing research initiatives abroad through comprehensive research on service sector productivity to drastically improve the measurement of real service sector output and productivity and to develop a new approach to the study of service sector activity taking the simultaneity of production and consumption into account.
