Japan Jan coincident indicator index down 0.5 point

TOKYO, March 7 (Reuters) - Japan's index of coincident
economic indicators was mostly steady in January, slipping a
preliminary 0.5 point from the previous month, indicating that
the economy remains on a mild recovery path as demand and
production stabilise after last year's earthquake and tsunami.	
    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, rose 1.1 points from
December, the Cabinet Office said on Wednesday.	
Details were as follows:
