I was interested to know about real GDP growth YOY in Japan. It was not easy to find a long-term series. I have computed one, using data on real GDP per capita from the Maddison Project and population estimates from the the Japanese Statistics Bureau. I have also put the Japanese real GDP growth series from FRED on the chart, as a sense-check. The two series look similar enough. Click to enlarge.
