Question ID: 576958
Where can I find an online graph or chart that shows Japan's economic
success story from approx. 1950 to 1990? I need something showing its
increasing GDP, with "time" on one of the axes of the graph (eg.
years) and GDP or national income or something on the other axis. I'd
like it to be a relatively reputable source too please. Thanks.

Tom2000 --

The Statistics Bureau and Statistical Research & Training Institute,
part of the Japanese government's Ministry of Internal Affairs &
Communications, publishes historical economic statistics.  The GDP
data on the page linked below goes to 1955 in chart 3-7, "Gross
Domestic Product and Expenditure Account" --

Japan Statistics Bureau
"Historial Statistics of Japan"

It shows the following growth (in billions of yen):
1955: 8,370Y
1960: 16,010Y
1970: 73,345Y
1980: 240,176Y
1990: 430,040Y
1998: 498,499Y
