  FORECAST:  
  Reuters' survey of economists expected a median reading of 53.5 in  
May versus an April reading of 53.1. 
  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.
