SAO PAULO, Aug 23 (Reuters) - A measure of consumer
confidence in Brazil rose to 113.1 in August, nearly making up
for the previous two months' cumulative decline, which coincided
with street protests across the country. 
    Still, the index remained below levels seen one year ago, as
a deteriorating economic growth outlook and persistent inflation
pressure dented consumer sentiment.
    The consumer confidence measure is calculated by the
Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV).
