Japan’s gross domestic product saw a downward revision to -7.1 percent on year in the fourth quarter of 2019, the Cabinet Office said on Monday.
That was worse than expectations for -6.6 percent after last month’s preliminary reading suggested a decline of 6.3 percent.
On a seasonally adjusted quarterly basis, GDP sank 1.8 percent – also missing expectations for a drop of 1.7 percent and down from -1.6 in the preliminary reading.
Nominal GDP fell 1.5 percent on quarter, missing expectations for -1.3 percent and down from -1.2 percent. The GDP deflator gained 1.2 percent on year, shy of expectations for 1.3 percent – which would have been unchanged.
