JANUARY 2009 MANUFACTURING INDEX SUMMARIES

PMI

Manufacturing contracted in January as the PMI registered 35.6 percent, 2.7 percentage points higher than the seasonally adjusted 32.9 percent reported in December. This is the 12th consecutive month of contraction in the manufacturing sector. A reading above 50 percent indicates that the manufacturing economy is generally expanding; below 50 percent indicates that it is generally contracting.

A PMI in excess of 41.2 percent, over a period of time, generally indicates an expansion of the overall economy. Therefore, the PMI indicates contraction in both the overall economy and the manufacturing sector. Ore stated, "The past relationship between the PMI and the overall economy indicates that the PMI for January (35.6 percent) corresponds to a 1.7 percent decline in real gross domestic product (GDP) on an annual basis."
