    MEXICO CITY, June 28 (Reuters) - Mexico's jobless rate
ticked higher in May adding to concerns that consumer demand,
which has offset weak industry in Latin America's No. 2 economy,
could flag.  
    Mexico's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 4.0
percent in May, the national statistics agency said on Tuesday.
The rate had dipped in April and it was still below a 4.2
percent rate seen in February and March.
