Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Markit Economics today released the October NCB Stockbrokers manufacturing purchasing managers’ index for Ireland. The Manufacturing PMI is designed to provide a single figure snap-shot for Irish manufacturing. It is based on a survey of companies in the Republic of Ireland manufacturing sector and is designed to provide the most up-to-date picture of business conditions in the private manufacturing sector. Anything above 50 indicates expansion; below 50, a contraction. The greater the divergence from 50, the greater the rate of change.
