Econometrics is a major discipline of modern economics. Japanese economists also received doctoral degrees from American universities and spread econometrics to Japan. First, the author will explain how Japanese scholars of Asian economics are influenced by contemporary American economics, especially econometrics. Next, the author confirmed that textbooks on Asian economics published since the 1980s contain more charts than those on Asian politics. However, the number of figures and tables did not show any remarkable characteristics when compared with the year of publication of the textbook, the number of pages, the publisher, and the field of study in economics.
