The government's official gauge of factory activity improved with the manufacturing PMI rising to 49.8, up from August's three-year low of 49.7 but still marking two straight months of decline.
Meanwhile, a private survey by Caixin/Markit revealed PMI fell to a fresh six-and-a-half year low of 47.2, ticking down from August's reading of 47.3 but still better than an earlier flash estimate of 47.
A reading below 50 indicates activity is shrinking on a monthly basis, while one above indicates expansion. Unlike the government's gauge that concentrates on large firms, Caixin's survey focuses on smaller and medium-sized companies.
