Silf (earlier I&L) and Swedbank AB. (at that time Sparbanken Sweden) make the first joint- internal-calculation of the “Purchasing Managers' Index” for the five indexes (PMI) in December 1994. Exactly one year later, the index was publicly announced for the first time. In Sweden the Puchasing Managers' Index is known as the ICI index. About 200 purchasing managers in the manufacturing industry are asked about New orders, Production, Employment, Suppliers' Delivery Times (within the company), and Inventories (purchased material). The dividing line between growth and decline – in line with US praxis – has been drawn at a total index of 50.

The index measures changes in the value of average trading day sales made by a sample of retailers throughout the country. The value of sales includes indirect taxes but is net of discounts. Revenue from wholesale business and sales of services is excluded. 850 retail businesses are surveyed. Motor vehicle dealers are included except those selling two wheeled motorised vehicles. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

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 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.

Manufacturing CIPS (The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply): A monthly gauge of manufacturing activity and future outlook. The survey is comparable to the US ISM survey, similarly based on the opinions of executives in manufacturing companies. Purchasing managers are asked about future demand, and adjusting orders for materials accordingly. The index summarizes the opinions of these executives to give a picture of the future of the manufacturing sector. 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 RBC Canadian Manufacturing PMI Report is based on data compiled from monthly replies to questionnaires sent to purchasing executives at over 400 industrial companies. RBC PMI is a composite index based on five of the individual indexes: New Orders, Output, Employment, Suppliers’ Delivery Times, Stock of Items Purchased. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable. PMI surveys are the first indicators of economic conditions published each month and are therefore available well ahead of comparable data produced by government bodies.

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).

The 'value of construction put in place' is a measure of the value of construction installed or erected at the site during a given period. For an individual project, this includes: Cost of materials installed or erected; Cost of labour (both by contractors and force account) and a proportionate share of the cost of construction equipment rental; Contractor's profit; Cost of architectural and engineering work; Miscellaneous overhead and office costs chargeable to the project on the owner's books; Interest and taxes paid during construction (except for state and locally owned projects). The total value-in-place for a given period is the sum of the value of work done on all projects underway during this period, regardless of when work on each individual project was started or when payment was made to the contractors. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Manufacturing ISM Report On Business is based on data compiled from purchasing and supply executives nationwide. Membership of the Manufacturing Business Survey Committee is diversified by NAICS, based on each industry's contribution to gross domestic product (GDP). Survey responses reflect the change, if any, in the current month compared to the previous month. For each of the indicators measured (New Orders, Backlog of Orders, New Export Orders, Imports, Production, Supplier Deliveries, Inventories, Customers' Inventories, Employment and Prices), this report shows the percentage reporting each response, the net difference between the number of responses in the positive economic direction (higher, better and slower for Supplier Deliveries) and the negative economic direction (lower, worse and faster for Supplier Deliveries), and the diffusion index. Diffusion indexes have the properties of leading indicators and are convenient summary measures showing the prevailing direction of change and the scope of change. A reading above 50 points indicates that the manufacturing economy is generally expanding; below 50 points indicates that it is generally declining. The Manufacturing ISM Report On Business is published monthly by the Institute for Supply Management.

This indicator represents the difference (in AUD) in value between imported and exported goods, services, income flows, and unilateral transfers during the previous quarter. A positive value (current account surplus) indicates that the flow of capital into Australia exceeds the capital leaving Australia. A negative value (current account deficit) means that there is a net capital outflow. This figure acts as a gauge of how Australia 's economy interacts with the rest of the world on a practical, non-investment basis.

Reserve Bank of Australia's monetary policy decisions are expressed in terms of a target for the cash rate, which is the overnight money market interest rate. Other interest rates in the economy are influenced by this interest rate to varying degrees, so that the behaviour of borrowers and lenders in the financial markets is affected by monetary policy (though not only by monetary policy). Monetary policy's principal medium-term objective is to control inflation. The formulation of monetary policy is the primary responsibility of the Reserve Bank Board. The Board usually meets eleven times each year, on the first Tuesday of the month except in January. The Reserve Bank Board's explanations of its monetary policy decisions are published on the Reserve Bank's website at 2.30 pm on the day of each Board meeting. Any change to the cash rate target will take effect from the following day.
