Richmond Fed Index

This index is based on one of many regional surveys that measure manufacturing activity. These surveys can be of some help in forecasting the national NAPM - particularly the Philadelphia and Chicago surveys which are more closely watched due to their timeliness and the fact that these regions represent a reasonable cross section of national manufacturing activities. This report is released after the National Association Purchasing Managers (NAPM) survey and is therefore of little value.

Importance (A-C): This report merits a D.

Source: Varies - Purchasing managers' organizations and Federal Reserve banks.
