The Stanbic Bank Ghana 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 Ghanaian 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. 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.
