Abstract

In Japan, agricultural activation poses a big problem and the increase in new-entrants-to-agriculture persons is expected. This paper analyzes questionnaire surveys of those who want to start working in agriculture to figure out the difficulties and anxiety they have. The questionnaires consist of the categorical data, such as status of their willingness to be a farmer, their age and sex and the free texts that are written by person who answered several sets of questions. Categories and free text question items are considered as viewpoints in this paper. Two viewpoints are selected to construct a cross tabulation of a search result. The number of the questionnaires that matches the two conditions is displayed in the cell of the cross table. All possible cross tables can be shown as a result. A specified cross table is shown if the user determines a pair of viewpoints. This paper reports case studies which are hard to achieve by simple keyword search.
