The Immigration Services Agency compiles statistics related to immigration and foreign residents in Japan (formerly registered alien statistics). These are published both monthly (as approximate values) and yearly.
The aim of the Immigration Services Agency in collecting these statistics is to confirm the state of affairs of its various jurisdictions, and for their use as data in the development of new/revised policies.
