preliminary 2.9 points in December from the previous month, the Cabinet Office said on Tuesday,

offers made and a gauge of the economy a few months ahead, rose 0.6 points from November.	
    The Cabinet Office said that the coincident index was starting to show signs of being in an
upward trend.	
    Details were as follows:
