Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) Philippines
The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) is a leading economic indicator providing decision makers monthly updates on economic conditions in the Philippines, which readings give economic policy-makers and business decision-makers with accurate and timely high quality internationally compatible economic data for planning and decision making.
Over 37 countries worldwide have been using PMI with the same methodology, the Philippines being one of seven in Asia.
PMI was designed to spot economic trends month-on-month, nationwide and has proven consistent with the government’s quarterly macro economic reports. The main goal of PMI is to provide reliable fact-based indicators as opposed to opinion or conﬁdence-based indicators.
