Markit operates business surveys in over 30 countries, surveying over 20,000 private sector companies every month.
Our flagship indicator is the Purchasing Managers’ Index™ (PMI™), which
has become established in all the major economies of the world as an
authoritative and leading indicator of business conditions.
In parallel with the PMIs, Markit produces surveys of productivity, labour market trends and the global business outlook.
Our data are widely regarded as among the most important released each month, as highlighted by their extensive use by institutions such as the Bank of England, the European Central Bank, the Ministry of Finance in Japan, the Central Bank of Russia and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority.
The high regard in which Markit surveys are held reflects the fact that the surveys are produced using high standards of market research and produce economic data that are not only published very rapidly but also accurately anticipate comparable official data.
