*/ The Manufacturing Business Confidence Index intends to measure the businessmen sentiment on the current situation of their firms. The Index is based on the opinions about: (1) the opinions on the business climate for the next months; (2) the current financial and economic environment relative to previous periods; (3) the expectations on the firm?s situation for the next months; (4) the firm?s employment expectations for the next months and (5) the firm?s current scenario to invest. The Index estimation derives from (a) the balance of answers to each question (positives less negatives); (b) an addition to each balance of a constant of 100, with the purpose of avoiding negative numbers; (c) the resulting subindexes are averaged (this is, each question has the same weight); (d) for the resulting index the base year, is defined as 1998=100. An increase of the Index means a greater confidence of businessmen, relative to the previous month, and viceversa.
