    This data collection contains data from questionnaire sent to 68 historians in Japan for their assessments of 18 statesmen active during the Taisho period in Japan (1912-1926).

The file also includes the historians' assessments of the Taisho statesmen on an interval scale of five, from most important, most influential to least important, least influential.
