United States Services PMI  2013-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The IHS Markit US Services PMI was revised lower to 54.8 in August of 2018 from a preliminary of 55.2 and below 56 in July. The reading pointed to the slowest growth in the services sector since April as new business rose the least in eight months, backlogs contracted for the second month and job creation was the lowest in seven months. Input inflation eased to a five-month low although anecdotal evidence suggested that higher cost burdens stemmed from greater purchases prices (largely driven by tariffs) and a rise in fuel costs. Finally, business confidence improved, driven by planned investment, greater marketing activity and a sustained rise in new business. Services PMI in the United States is reported by Markit Economics.
