JPMorgan Global PMI: Global Report on Services - October 3, 2013
Service Sector Growth Slows In September
The JPMorgan Global Services Business Activity Index — a composite index produced by JPMorgan and Markit in association with ISM and IFPSM — posted 53.6 in September, down sharply from August's two-and-a-half year high of 56.0. Higher output was underpinned by further marked growth of new business.
Please note that, of the national services PMI data usually available for inclusion in the global PMI, data for China, India and Hong Kong were not available for September. This is due to market holidays delaying the release of these series.
