Data Collection

Posted by M_Kano on 12 Feb 2011 at 07:58 GMT

Data collected is regional only, and does not seem to be representative of Japanese people as a whole.

Even within regions (eg. a state, prefecture) care must be taken to make sure that data does not come from certain neighborhoods (eg. Italian-American neighborhood, Korean-Japanese neighborhood).

No competing interests declared.
