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

  • New York City purchasing managers balanced short term uncertainty with persistent long term optimism in May.
  • Three survey indices (Current Business Conditions, Employment, and Current Revenues) pulled back to levels not seen since before the Presidential election.
  • Forward looking optimism and the health of the top line (Expected Revenues) remain strong.

Remember to check back in with us on Friday, July 5th for the release of the June report.
