  2. Manufacturing Employment Index (MEI): This indicator tracks the number of people employed in the manufacturing sector, and it can be used to gauge the health of the labor market.
  3. Manufacturing Orders Index (MOI): This indicator tracks the number of orders received by manufacturers for goods, and it can provide insight into future production levels.
  4. Capacity Utilization: This indicator measures the percentage of a manufacturer’s production capacity that is being used, and it can be used to gauge the level of economic activity in the manufacturing sector.
  5. Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI): This is a survey-based indicator that measures the level of business activity in the manufacturing sector, including new orders, production levels, and employment.
  6. Inventory Levels: This indicator tracks the level of inventories held by manufacturers, and it can provide insights into future production levels and demand.
