ISM Report On Business®
The ISM® Report On Business®, Manufacturing and Non-Manufacturing, are two of the most reliable economic indicators available, providing guidance to supply management professionals, economists, analysts, and government and business leaders. These are the first reports available on the first and third business day of each month and have been consistently accurate in indicating the direction of the overall economy in addition to the manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors. However, the reports are not meant to be the only barometers consulted by those interested in tracking the economy – they should be used in conjunction with other measurements.
