YAMAMOTO Isamu (Faculty Fellow)



Considering growing social concern about the desirable labor market design in a super-aged society, it is important to explore the behavior of firms and workers and their interaction when examining firms' competitive power and workers' work-life balance in Japan. This project constructs matched employer-employee panel data, which collect numerous information such as employment, wage, work hours, human resource management, and work-life balance. Using the matched panel data, this project carries out empirical research to examine various issues in the Japanese labor market including work-life balance and labor market mobility.
