Japan’s industrial output fell a seasonally adjusted 0.5 percent in November from the previous month, slightly less than a preliminary 0.6 percent decrease, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said Monday.
The index of output at factories and mines in the month stood at 97.9 against the base of 100 for 2010, compared with 97.8 in the preliminary data released on Dec. 26.
A ministry official attributed the revision to robust production of aircraft parts which was not reflected in the initial report.
The index of shipments was unchanged from the earlier figure at a decrease of 1.4 percent, while the inventory index marked a 1.1 percent rise against a preliminary 1.0 percent increase.
