The Institute for Supply Management's non-manufacturing business activity composite index increased to 54.5 percent in May 2003 from 50.7 percent in April, on a seasonally adjusted basis. An index reading below 50 percent signals a slowing economy, while a level above 50 percent suggests expansion. The employment index rose to 48.7 percent from 48.2 percent in April 2003.
