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).

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.

This indicator represents the difference (in AUD) in value between imported and exported goods and services during the reported month; This is the largest component of a country's balance of payments. When a country's exports are greater than their imports, a Trade Surplus exists. Similarly, when imports are greater than exports, a Trade Deficit exists. Countries with a severe imbalance are not self-sufficient, either because they rely heavily on foreign markets to purchase their goods (in the case of a Surplus) or because they don't produce enough goods internally to meet demand (in the case of a Deficit).

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.
