What is the difference between the Markit Manufacturing PMI and the ISM Manufacturing PMI? The monthly number differs a lot, my understanding is that they are trying to indicate the same thing.

The statement is the same but the providers are different and thus the numbers could also differ $\endgroup$ – Probilitator Mar 4 '14 at 10:47
