- Outstanding Amounts of Government Securities and Corporate Bonds : Notes
This database provides information on monthly amounts issued, amounts redeemed, and amounts outstanding (end of month) for government securities and corporate bonds, shown separately for internal and external bonds, during the period April 1919 - December 1941. These include government bonds, treasury bills, government rice-purchase notes, government silk-purchase notes, local government bonds, bank bonds, and corporation bonds. Internal government bonds, here, include special exchequer notes. The value derived by subtracting the amount redeemed from the amount issued will not necessarily equal the end-of-month balance, even when adding the balance as of the end of the previous month.
The source for this data is Statistics of Loans and Debentures, published by the Research Department of the Bank of Japan. Statistics of Loans and Debentures was published beginning April 1919. Its title changed in January 1925 to Statistics of Loans, Debentures and Shares. Later, beginning August 1938 it was combined with Statistics of Business Enterprises Plans for Promotion and Extension, Statistics on Capital Payments, A Survey on the Capital of Corporations, and Statistics of Warehouse Inventories into Statistics of Business Enterprises Plans, Issue/Redemption of Loans and Debentures, Capital Payments, Capital of Corporations, and Warehouse Inventories. Beginning in September 1938 this was changed to Statistics on Business Enterprises Plans, Issue/Redemption of Loans and Debentures, Capital Payments, and Capital of Corporations, which was published through December 1941.
