Australia Performance Services Index  2009-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The Australian Performance of Services Index fell to 53 in August of 2017 from 56.4 in July, pointing to a sixth straight month of expansion in the services sector but the lowest since May this year as three of the five activity sub-indexes moderated: sales (53.5 from 60.3 in July), new orders (54.2 from 55.2) and employment (52.5 from 56.9). In contrast, inventories rose at a faster pace (54.9 from 50.8). August's survey results were mainly attributed to positive demand for B2B services from construction and mining, offset by sinking optimism in retail and hospitality. Services PMI in Australia averaged 48.63 Index Points from 2009 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 57.70 Index Points in December of 2016 and a record low of 39 Index Points in August of 2013.
