(Click on for main story) TOKYO, Dec 7 (Reuters) - Japanese big manufacturers' morale rose for the first time in four months in December and service-sector mood hit a three-year high, a Reuters monthly poll found, offering fresh evidence of recovery in the world's number-three economy from COVID-19 doldrums. The monthly poll, which closely tracks the Bank of Japan's quarterly tankan, canvassed 495 big non-financial Japanese firms, of which 252 replied during the period Nov. 22 to Dec. 2. Following is a table of index readings, which are derived by subtracting the percentage of respondents who say conditions are poor from those who say conditions are good. A positive reading means optimists outnumber pessimists. 2023 2022 MARCH(f'cast) DEC NOV OCT SEP AUG JUL =============================================================== MANUFACTURERS ( +8) +8 +2 +5 +10 +13 +9 --------------------------------------------------------------- (Materials) ( +2) -2 +3 0 +9 +17 +5 - Textiles/paper ( 0) -20 0 -10 0 -20 0 - Chemicals (+11) +11 +11 +10 +29 +38 +18 - Oil refinery/ceramics (+25) +13 0 0 +14 +25 +12 - Steel/nonferrous metals (-30) -20 -11 -9 -22 0 -18 (Manufactured products) (+12) +13 +2 +8 +10 +11 +12 - Food ( -9) 0 +25 +12 +8 0 0 - Metal products/machinery (+37) +37 +26 +18 +28 +31 +30 - Electric machinery ( -9) -5 -24 +5 -4 +10 +15 - Autos/transport equipment (+18) +9 -29 -17 -15 -38 -38 - Precision machinery/others( +8) +7 +14 +15 +23 +27 +23 ================================================================ NON-MANUFACTURERS (+20) +25 +20 +15 +11 +19 +14 ---------------------------------------------------------------- - Real estate/construction ( +7) +7 +9 0 -4 0 -8 - Retail/wholesale (+24) +30 +32 +17 +16 +28 +24 - Wholesalers (+30) +45 +50 +42 +35 +55 +45 - Retailers (+18) +12 +11 -12 -6 0 0 - Information/communications(+34) +46 +39 +43 +50 +40 +46 - Transport/utility (+26) +27 +26 +32 +28 +30 +10 - Other services (+15) +19 0 0 -16 0 +10 =============================================================== MANUFACTURERS NON-MANUFACTURERS RTRS BOJ RTRS BOJ --------------------------------------------------------------- MAR 2023 (forecast) (+8)   -      (+20) - FEB - - - - JAN - - - - DEC 2022 (forecast) +8 ( +9) +25 (+11) NOV +2 - +20 - OCT +5 - +15 - SEP +10 +8 +11 +14 AUG +13 - +19 - JUL +9 - +14 - JUN +9 +9 +13 +13 MAY +5 - +13 - APR +11 - +8 - MAR +8 +14 -1 +9 FEB +6 - +3 - JAN +17 - +8 - DEC 2021 +22 +17 +6 +10 NOV +13 - +1 - OCT +16 - -1 - SEP +18 +18 -2 +2 AUG +33 - +5 - JUL +25 - -3 - JUN +22 +14 0 +1 MAY +21 - +2 - APR +13 - -3 - MAR +6 +5 -5 -1 FEB +3 - -7 - JAN -1 - -11 - DEC 2020 -9 -10 -4 -5 NOV -13 - -13 - OCT -26 - -16 - SEP -29 -27 -18 -12 AUG -33 - -23 - JUL -44 - -26 - JUN -46 -34 -32 -17 MAY -44 - -36 - APR -30 - -23 - MAR -20 -8 -10 +8 FEB -5 - +15 - JAN -6 - +14 - DEC 2019 -6 0 +14 +20 NOV -9 - +12 - OCT -5 - +25 - SEP -7 +5 +19 +21 AUG -4 - +13 - JUL +3 - +25 - JUN +6 +7 +22 +23 MAY +12 - +27 - APR +8 - +24 - MAR +10 +12 +22 +21 FEB +13 - +22 - JAN +18 - +31 - ---------------------------------------------------------------- (Reporting by Tetsushi Kajimoto)
