PARIS, May 24 (Reuters) - French industrial morale fell
slightly in May though broader business confidence rose to the
highest level since January, data from state statistics body
INSEE showed on Tuesday.
    Morale in the industrial sector fell to 104 from 105 in
April, which was revised up from 104 previously. A Reuters poll
of 13 economists had an average forecast of 104.
    However, overall business confidence rose to 102 from 101,
boosted by an improvement in the services and retail trade
sectors.
    The following are the main figures published by INSEE.
Although the composite business sentiment index is
broader-based, industry morale is generally more closely
followed by economists.
