The IHS PMI data is one of the best leading indicators for GDP performance.

It is compiled by surveying purchasing managers across a wide range of economic sectors and is a widely consulted bellwether of business sentiment.

The PMI is one of the few data sets allowing for monthly regional comparisons.


Despite disappointing monthly GDP growth in October (0.1% m/m), the PMI data suggests recovery in November, especially in London.

Any value above 50 represents economic expansion (positive GDP growth). Anything above 55 is strong. Anything above 60 is very strong.

With the exception of the North East, all regions outperformed their respective five year averages.

Outperformance reaches from 1.2 points in the West Midlands to 11.9 points in London.
