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.

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. The survey is compiled by Markit Economics in association with AERCE (www.aerce.org).

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).

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.
