While Japan has recorded fewer casualties from COVID-19 than many other democracies, the government's handling of the pandemic has been routinely criticized. In this presentation, I explore results from six public opinion surveys that our research team has conducted since March 2020. Themes that will be examined include: 1) differences in the evaluations of central versus local government performance; 2) how views about the relative merits of prioritizing public health versus the economy have evolved over the past year; 3) differences in protective measures, such as social distancing, taken by population subgroups, including differences by gender, educational attainment, SNS usage, and trust in scientific experts.
