The latest figure also marked the weakest expansion in the private sector since last December, amid reports that prices pressures had acted to limit demand. Both output and new orders continued to grow, with output increasing in the industry, services and wholesale & retail sectors, but declining in agriculture and construction. Meanwhile, both employment and purchasing activity rose, as new orders expanded, alongside improved supplier performance.

Uganda Composite PMI
The Stanbic Bank Uganda 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 Ugandan 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.
