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