The ISM-New York Report on Business is released on the second business day of each month at 9:45am ET. The Report, which was first run in 1917, is a highly regarded indicator of business conditions in the New York Metro area including a six-month outlook, employment index, and current and expected revenues. 

The September report, which can be downloaded here, allows us to make the following observations:

  • The majority of the indices held steady month over month or made minor changes
  • The exception to this observation was Employment, which dropped to 33.9 in September, a marked decrease from the 54.9 seen in August
  • 81% of this month's respondents reported that there would either be no change in the number of jobs in their organization or there would be a decrease in jobs
