On the Survey on Physical Fitness and Motor Abilities

MEXT has been conducting the Physical Fitness Survey since 1964 to show the current condition of Japanese citizens’ physical fitness and motor abilities, as well as to gather basic data for physical education and sport as well as for government administration.
The New Survey on Physical Fitness carried out from 1999 was created upon comprehensive review of past surveys and upgrading its contents to comply with today’s situation. New items in the survey include changes in citizens’ physique, progress of sport medicine and science, and the advance of an aging society.
