This dataset presents long-term projections of the major economic indices (e.g., production, capital stock, and labor population) for Japan's 47 prefectures. The economic projections are based on the econometric models estimated from historical data, and the projection results corresponding to ten socioeconomic scenarios are available. The learning period is from 1975 to 2012, and the projection period is 2013 to 2100. Economic value is measured in constant 2000 JPY. The historical data on the economic indices are from the Regional-Level Japan Industrial Productivity (R-JIP) Database 2017 developed by the Research Institute of Economy, Trade, and Industry (RIETI). The historical data on population are from the Statistics Bureau of Japan. The population scenarios used for the economic projections are consistent with the Japan Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (JPNSSPs) developed by the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES). For details of the econometric models and socioeconomic scenarios, see the forthcoming paper in Heliyon. This study was supported by the Environment Research and Technology Development Fund JPMEERF20182005 of the Environmental Restoration and Conservation Agency of Japan.
