  FORECAST: 
  Reuters' survey of economists expected a median reading of
53.0 in July versus a June reading of 52.2.
  THE SURVEY: 
  ISM compiles its diffusion index by surveying more than 370 
purchasing executives in more than 62 different service
industries once a month. 
  The responses reflect the change in the current month 
compared to the previous month. The non-manufacturing ISM 
report is seasonally adjusted except for the business activity, 
new orders, imports, and employment. The ISM 
non-manufacturing survey was launched in July 1997.
