TOKYO -- Staffing, internet services and other companies that address conditions in Japan such as labor shortages and the rise in dual-income households are top performers among the country's midtier businesses, a Nikkei Inc. survey finds.

The survey ranks 201 companies for which six sets of data including sales, operating margin and market capitalization were available as of February. The businesses are listed on Japanese markets for emerging companies such as the Tokyo Stock Exchange's Mothers market, have existed for no more than 20 years and earn up to 100 billion yen ($900 million) in annual sales.
