TOKYO, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Japanese consumer confidence worsened in September, a Cabinet Office survey showed on Thursday.
The survey's sentiment index for general households, which includes views on incomes and jobs, was 40.1 in September, down from 40.5 in August.
A reading below 50 suggests consumer pessimism.
The survey began in 1982. "General households" are those with two or more people.
