Purolator International, a U.S.-based supply chain logistics solutions company, launched the Long Island Supply Chain Index (LISCI) in March 2016 as an annual guide to the overall economic health of the Long Island, NY region. Survey respondents were asked to provide insight into new orders, production level, prices, employment, inventory levels, backlog of orders, exports, and air shipments. By gauging the state of the local manufacturing industry using survey feedback from Long Island-based manufacturers, research data has helped forecast the overall strength of the local region’s economy. Since the initial survey wave, the Long Island survey has been repeated three times. The most recent wave (2019) was conducted as a phone interview by CHRR.
