Japan Aug coincident indicator index rises 0.3 pts

TOKYO, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Japan's index of coincident
economic indicators rose a preliminary 0.3 points in August from
the previous month, the Cabinet Office said on Friday,
reflecting a steady recovery from the March earthquake although
worries about a global slowdown and a strong yen cloud the
outlook.	
    The index of leading economic indicators, compiled using
data such as the number of job offers and consumer sentiment and
a gauge of the economy a few months ahead, fell 0.8 points from
July.	
    The government said the coincident index suggested the
economy is improving, keeping the assessment unchanged from the
previous month.    	
    Details were as follows:	

--------------------------------------------------	
                     AUGUST      JULY        JUNE	
 Leading Index       -0.8        +2.0        +3.3	
 Coincident Index    +0.3        -0.3        +2.3	
 Lagging Index       +1.0        -0.6        -0.2
