Japan consumer mood worsens in October

TOKYO, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Japanese consumer confidence
deteriorated in October, a Cabinet Office survey showed on
Friday, in a sign that economic uncertainty weighed on
sentiment.
    The survey's sentiment index for general households, which
includes views on incomes and jobs, was 39.7 in October, down
from 40.1 in September.
    A reading below 50 suggests consumer pessimism.
    
    Following is a comparison with previous months:
                        OCT      SEPT      AUG       JULY
 General households     39.7     40.1      40.5      39.7
    The survey began in 1982. "General households" are those
with 
two or more people.(Reporting by Kaori Kaneko; Editing by Edwina Gibbs)
