 TOKYO, June 9 (Reuters) - Japan's gross domestic product (GDP) shrank 0.9 percent in
January-March from the previous quarter, revised Cabinet Office data showed on Thursday,
unchanged from the preliminary figure despite a bigger drop in corporate capital spending than
initially estimated in the wake of the March earthquake.	
 The figure compared with economists' median forecast for a revised 0.8 percent contraction.
 	
 It translated into an annualised contraction of 3.5 percent in real, price-adjusted terms,
against an initial reading of 3.7 percent of contraction and economists' forecast of a 3.0
percent decline.	
 Capital spending fell a revised 1.3 percent, larger than a preliminary reading of a 0.9
percent drop and economists' forecast of a 0.8 percent decline.	
 Following is a table of revised GDP data for January-March and October-December (in percent,
median consensus market forecasts in parentheses:)
