BUENOS AIRES, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Argentina's industrial output rose a weaker-than-expected 0.5 percent in August compared with the same month a year ago, economy ministry data showed on Thursday.

The figure compared with a median forecast in a Reuters poll of analysts for a 1.1 percent gain.

Industrial output fell 0.1 percent in August from the previous month in seasonally adjusted terms, the ministry said. (Reporting by Buenos Aires newsroom; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
