Reports on Business (ROB)

Published in Inside Supply Management™; ISM’s monthly magazine, the Report on Business® (ROB) is considered by many economists to be the most reliable near-term economic barometer available. It is reviewed regularly by top government agencies and economic and business leaders for its timely, accurate information regarding the manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors of the economy. 

ISM-Cleveland, Inc., in conjunction with John Carroll University’s Boler School of Business, tracks and reports our regional ROB with the participation and support of our member companies. To participate in the monthly regional Report on Business, you would complete a confidential questionnaire that is submitted directly to John Carroll University.  Please contact for information on how you can participate.
