Non-manufacturing index slips but finishes first half of 2019 with growth

The index ISM uses to measure non-manufacturing growth—known as the NMI—slipped 1.8% to 55.1 (a reading of 50 or higher indicates growth is occurring). This reading represents the 113th consecutive month of NMI growth, with June’s NMI down 2.8% compared to the 12-month average of 57.9. June’s reading is the lowest over that span.
