The 3rd survey (NFRJ08) was conducted in Jan.-Feb. 2009. We published the first report containig the outline, materials, documents, and basic tabulation in Apr. 2010. We also conducted the NFRJ08 Joint Data Use Project (closed to the JSFS members) in 2010-2011. We compiled papers from the project as the second report (four volumes) in Sep. 2011. We have deposited the NFRJ08 dataset at SSJDA (Social Science Japan Data Archive by the University of Tokyo, Institute of Social Science) as Survey Number 0817 since Feb. 2012.
