Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) is based on monthly questionnaire surveys of carefully selected companies which provide an advance indication of what is really happening in the private sector economy by tracking changes in variables such as output, new orders, stock levels, employment and prices across the manufacturing sector. The flash PMI is the first economic indicators for each month, providing accurate evidence of changing economic conditions well ahead of comparable government statistics. The index is presented as an index with a value between 1-100. Values above 50 indicate that the economic outlook is positive. Alternately, readings below 50 mean future outlook is less favourable. The survey is compiled by Markit Economics in association with CDAF (www.cdaf.asso.fr). This is the preliminary estimate.

Up to and including March 2005, data refers to all persons of working age who during the reference week were not employed, but were willing and able to work and had looked for work (or would have looked for work if they had not been temporarily prevented from doing so) during the last four weeks. Also included are persons waiting to begin a job starting within three months. Data from 1976 include students who comply with ILO unemployment criteria. As from October 2007, the Swedish Labour Force Survey unemployment criteria also include students looking for job. The rate is calculated as the unemployed as a percentage of total labour force. Total labour force equals the employed plus the unemployed as defined in the labour force survey.

The extent to which a company uses its facilities at capacity, expressed as a percentage. That is, the capacity utilization rate states how much a company produces as a percentage of what it can produce. For example, if a factory produces 1 000 widgets per day but could produce 1 200 for the same cost, it has a capacity utilization rate of 83.3% (actual output/potential output)x100 [%].

This survey presents estimates of monthly sales levels for wholesale merchants in Canada, each province and territory. This survey provides information on the performance of the wholesale trade sector and is an important indicator of the health of the Canadian economy. Wholesale sales in real terms are calculated by deflating current dollar values using import and industry product price indexes. As many of the goods sold by wholesalers are imported, fluctuations in the value of the Canadian dollar can have an important influence on the prices of goods bought and sold by wholesalers. This is the percentage change compared with the the previous month.

Markit Flash U.S. Manufacturing PMI. The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) is a composite index based on five of the individual indexes: New Orders, Output, Employment, Suppliers’ Delivery Times, Stocks of Items Purchased. Diffusion indexes have the properties of leading indicators and are convenient summary measures showing the prevailing direction of change. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease. The flash estimate is typically based on approximately 85%–90% of total PMI survey responses each month and is designed to provide an accurate advance indication of the final PMI data. Data are collected and published by Markit Economics (www.markiteconomics.com).
