South Korea’s September HSBC PMI Rose to 49.7

Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Following is the September HSBC South Korea Manufacturing PMI as compiled by Markit Economics.

The HSBC South Korea PMI is designed to provide a single figure snap-shot for South Korea’s economy. It is based on a survey of over 400 purchasing executives and is designed to provide the most up-to-date picture of business conditions in the South Korea private sector.

Anything above 50 indicates expansion; below 50, a contraction. The greater the divergence from 50, the greater the rate of change.
