About MNI Indicators MNI Indicators specialises in producing business and consumer surveys designed to present an advance picture of the economic landscape and highlight changing trends in business and consumer activity. MNI Indicators produces the renowned Chicago Business Barometer TM , a key leading indic ator of the US economy. MNI Indicators is part of Market News International, Inc., a leading provider of news and intelligence. Notes to Editors Production : MNI Indicators, part of Market News International Inc. Date range : Monthly since 1946 Release Date: Last working day of the month Bloomberg ticker: CHPMIND䀀X Collection method: Survey data is collected online each month from manufacturing and non - manufacturing firms in the Chicago area. Respondents are purchasing/supply - chain professional s, primarily drawn from the membership of the ISM - Chicago ( Institute for Supply Management – Chicago ). Calculation method : Respondents are asked their opinion on whether a particular business activity has increased, decreased or remained the same compared with the previous month. E.g. Is Production Higher/Same/Lower compared with a month ago? A diffusion indicator is then calculated by adding the percentage share of positive responses to half the percentage of those respondents reporting no change. The three questions related to Buying Policy are measured in days and are not diffusion indicators. The Chicago Business Barometer TM and all sub - indicators are then seasonally adjusted. An indicator reading above 50 shows expansion compared with a month earli er while below 50 indicates contraction. A result of 50 is neutral. The farther an indicator is above or below 50, the greater or smaller the rate of change. Headline indicator: T he Chicago Business Barometer TM is a weighted composite indicator made up of five sub - indicators, namely New Orders, Production, Employment, Order Backlogs and Supplier Deliveries. It is designed to predict future changes in gross domestic product (GDP). Other indicators: The survey also a sks companies about changes in their input prices, inventories and lead times to source production materi e l, MRO supplies and capital equipment.
