Asia Pacific

JAPAN— The Japanese market research industry resumed sending out survey invites to online panellists earlier today, having agreed to put them on hold following the earthquake and tsunami on Friday.

In an update sent to Research, executives of Research Panel Asia told how members of the industry had met and decided that survey invites would restart at noon today.

Exceptions would apply to respondents in the prefectures of Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi, Akita, Yamagata, Fukushima and Ibaraki, which were hardest hit by the disasters.
