The seasonally adjusted S&P Global U.S. Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) in August was 48.5, consistent with July. Manufacturers reported supply-chain challenges and increased costs driving the production decline.

The PMI index is composed of five sub-indices tracking changes in new orders, output, employment, suppliers’ delivery times and stocks of raw materials. A reading above 50 indicates growth. See S&P Global
