NOTES:
* Figure for the estimated density rate for 2011 is used the numbers from "Supplementary-estimated figures for Labour Force Survey in June 2011 due to the Great East Japan Earthquake" was posted by Statistics Bureau of MIC. It requires attention to analyze chronologically.
  
"-" means that the estimated density rate by size of establishment is not calculated because the data of number of employees of whole Japan (including Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures) is not available in Labour Force Survey in June 2011.
