This paper uses data from Japan to ascertain the determinants of government information disclosures by considering the role of special interest groups and government size. A IV-Tobit model is employed to control for endogeneity bias of government size. The major findings are as follows: (1) special interest groups have a detrimental effect on information disclosure; (2) special interest groups and an aging population increase government size; and (3) information disclosure ordinances are more likely to be enacted with a large government size.
