Zambia Composite PMI  2017-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The Stanbic Bank Zambia PMI decreased to 47.1 in February of 2018 from 50.7 in January. The reading pointed to the first contraction in private sector activity in ten months amid a substantial fall in business activity, as the cholera outbreak continued. Also, output prices rose the most in 12 months, mainly driven by squeezed margins coupled with the desire to increase profits. On the other hand, private sector companies continued to increase their staffing levels and purchasing activity, which consequently enabled businesses to reduce their backlogs. Composite Pmi in Zambia is reported by Markit Economics.

The Stanbic Bank Zambia Purchasing Managers’ Index is based on data compiled from monthly replies to questionnaires sent to purchasing executives in approximately 400 private sector companies, which have been carefully selected to accurately represent the true structure of the Zambian economy, including agriculture, construction, industry, services and wholesale & retail. The panel is stratified by GDP and company workforce size. Survey responses reflect the change, if any, in the current month compared to the previous month based on data collected mid-month. A reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease. The Purchasing Managers’ Index™ (PMI™) is a composite index based on five of the individual sub-components with the following weights: New Orders - 0.3, Output - 0.25, Employment - 0.2, Suppliers’ Delivery Times - 0.15, Stock of Items Purchased - 0.1, with the Suppliers’ Delivery Times sub-component inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction.
