The Manufacturing ISM Report On Business® is considered by many economists to be the most reliable near-term economic barometer available. It is reviewed regularly by top government agencies and economic and business leaders for its timely, accurate information. The Non-Manufacturing ISM Report On Business® is based on data compiled from monthly surveys sent to purchasing and supply executives working in the non-manufacturing industries across the country. Each month, both reports are compiled from responses to questions asked of more than 350 purchasing and supply executives across the country and reflects change, if any, in the current month compared to previous months.
