This study aims to understand the social problems scientifically utilized horizon scanning technique, and contribute to public policy formulation based on scanning analysis. In this paper, we proposed a public opinion framework for public policy based on social bigdata, and then confirmed the feasibility this framework by analysis of the relationship between public opinion and results after implementation of public policy. Consequently, based on the analysis, we also drew implications of policy formulation about 'free childcare for under 5-years of age' as an object of study.
