Regional PMI

The Lloyds Bank Regional Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) features original survey data collected from a representative panel of companies based in the appropriate England and Wales region. Firms questioned operate in manufacturing and service sectors.

The surveys are produced by Markit Economics and are based on its work for the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply.

The regional surveys provide an advance indication of what is really happening in the private sector economy by tracking variables such as output, new orders, employment and prices. They are based on fact, not opinion, and are the first indicators of economic conditions each month.
