I doubt that there are 2011 numbers available. But here is some older data:

Including a neat map for the data through 2010:

Of course not! They have not even really started yet apart from clearing the area of rubble. Only 4.5 months have passed since the tsunami.

the curiosity topic 2011/7/31 01:14
Well, just to add, I wouldn't really add "of course" to the "not." The restoration up in the Tohoku Tsunami area is being much delayed compared to say the restoration upon the Hanshin Great Earthquake back in the 90s.

A lot of the part has indeed been restored, but there is a great lack of volunteers. It is said that this is due to the area having much less roads and transportation and the difficulty of the type of damage they had.

Of course, we do have to keep in mind that, now that we have the internet, a lot of people are supporting through the internet making donations of money and other material such as clothes and furniture through "matching sites."

Support is greatly appreciated, although it is getting much better. And note that the damage is in the very limited coastal part of the wide Tohoku area. Other touristical areas are operating as usual.

Absolutely not. Depending on what metrics you are using it will be years before the reconstruction is complete. The cleanup efforts have only just ended, and now the rebuilding begins.

For comparison it took several years to recover from Hurricane Katrina, and in many ways the reconstruction efforts are still ongoing (6 years later).
