December services economy activity ends 2022 with some declines, reports ISM

Posted by

The Services PMI—at 49.6 a (a reading of 50 or higher signals growth)—fell 6.9% off of December’s 56.5, snapping a 30-month run of growth, coupled with the PMI contracting for two consecutive months for the first time going back to April and May 2020, in the early months of the pandemic. What’s more, prior to December’s PMI contraction, services growth had been intact for 152 of the last 154 months through November.
