Highlights
Japan's Index of Tertiary Industry Activity rose 0.2 percent on the month in February after no change in January. Increases in the component index for four of the eleven main industry groups within the services sector outweighed falls in the index for six other groups, with one group showing no change. Industries providing services to consumers recorded an increase in their activity of 0.5 percent on the the month, while those providing services to businesses recorded a decline of 0.3 percent.

The original index fell 1.3 percent year-on-year in February, after an increase of 0.7 percent in January, though year-on-year companions for this index for both of these months are likely affected to some extent by the timing of lunar new year holidays in Asia.

The index incorporates data wholesale and retail trade, financial services, health care, real estate, leisure and utilities.
