Japan Sept industrial output falls 1.1 pct month/month

TOKYO, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Japan’s industrial output fell 1.1 percent in September, government data showed on Tuesday, due to a decline in production of electronic parts and construction equipment.

The result compared with a median market forecast for a 1.5 percent decline and followed a revised 2.0 percent increase in August.

Manufacturers surveyed by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry expect output to rise 4.7 percent in October and decline 0.9 percent in November.
