Latest data released by the Japanese Cabinet Office – 7 April 2021

  • Prior 98.5
  • Coincident index 89.0 vs 89.0 expected
  • Prior 90.3

This reflects a further improvement in economic sentiment in Japan to start the year despite state of emergency measures prevailing at the time.

The index is used as a reference to economic conditions, but most of the indicators used to make up the index has already been released individually – so there isn’t much of an impact on this release. Source
