Importance of manufacturing and services PMIs

In this series, we’ll take a look at the final manufacturing and services PMIs of major developed nations for April 2017. Monthly manufacturing PMI reports show manufacturing activity, output, new orders, export orders, and employment numbers. They help us assess the growth and trends in world manufacturing activity. In the same way, services PMIs help us assess the growth and trends in world services activity.

Many policymakers use these PMIs to make important policy decisions that could affect the overall economy. In this series, we’ll also look at the US non-farm payroll and ADP employment reports for April 2017.
