United States Chicago PMI  1967-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The MNI Chicago Business Barometer increased to 65.2 in September of 2017 from 58.9 in each of the previous two months, beating market expectations of 58.5. It is the highest reading in three months and the second highest in more than three years. Order backlogs went up to a 29-year high; output and new orders rose for the second consecutive month and adverse weather conditions also led some companies to stockpile goods as a precautionary measure. In addition, employment rose for the first time in four months although companies continued to cite difficulty in finding skilled workers. September’s survey result left the Q3 calendar average of the Barometer at 61.0, virtually unchanged from Q2’s three-year high of 61.1. Chicago Pmi in the United States averaged 54.63 Index Points from 1967 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 78.80 Index Points in November of 1973 and a record low of 21.40 Index Points in June of 1980.
