Nov 27 (Reuters) - French consumer confidence fell to 84 in November from 85 in 
October, dropping one notch further below its long-term average as concerns about 
unemployment soared, the official INSEE statistics agency said on Wednesday. 
    A Reuters poll of 19 economists had on average forecast 85.  
                         Lg-term avg     Aug         Sept        Oct            Nov

    The index, which is not closely correlated to consumer spending trends, hit an 
all-time low in May and June 2013 of 79. The highest level since the survey was conducted 
on a monthly basis was 125 in January 2001. Consumer spending data for October will be 
released on Friday. 
    A separate set of data showed on Monday that French industrial morale held steady in 
November, beating expectations for a slight deterioration.
