Chicago Purchasing Managers Report (PMI)

The Chicago PMI is one of several manufacturing surveys released throughout the month. The various reports are ranked according to timeliness and the importance of the region. Specifically, the Chicago PMI is released on the last business day of each month. Like the NAPM, a reading over 50% indicates expansion from the month prior, while a reading under 50% indicates contraction.
