WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. manufacturing activity rebounded in September, but factory deliveries of raw materials saw longer delays and pushed up higher prices for inputs.

The Institute for Supply Management said on Friday that its index of factory activity in the country rose to a reading of 61.1 last month from 59.9 in August.

Any reading above the 50 level indicates growth in manufacturing activity, which represents 12 percent of the US economy.

Economists polled by Reuters had expected the index to fall to 59.6.
