HEADS UP: The world's biggest economies are publishing their May manufacturing PMI reports. This is our scorecard.

On Friday, we learned that China's official manufacturing PMI unexpectedly climbed to 50.8 in May

However, China's unofficial HSBC PMI fell to 49.6 from 50.4 a month ago.

In fact, PMI numbers from South Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam all deteriorated, raising some skepticism about the official number.

At the beginning of each month, Markit, HSBC, RBC, JP Morgan, and several other major data gathering institutions publish the latest local readings of the manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) for countries around the world.

PMI is one of the best leading indicators of the economy. 

Each reading is based on surveys of hundreds of companies. Read more about it at Markit.

These are not the most closely followed data points. However, the power of the insights is unparalleled. Jim O'Neill, the former Goldman Sachs economist, believes the PMI numbers are among the most reliable economic indicators in the world. BlackRock's Russ Koesterich thinks it's one of the most underrated indicators.
