FORECAST:

Reuters' survey of economists expected a median reading of 53.2 in September versus an August reading of 53.7.

THE SURVEY:

ISM compiles its diffusion index by surveying more than 370 purchasing executives in more than 62 different service industries once a month.

The responses reflect the change in the current month compared to the previous month. The non-manufacturing ISM report is seasonally adjusted except for the business activity, new orders, imports, and employment. The ISM non-manufacturing survey was launched in July 1997.
