An Appraisal of Composite Forecasting Methods
David W. Park and William G. Tomek
Year: 1986
 

Abstract

In forecasting, the challenge faced by analysts is to select the "optimal" forecast and forecasting procedure. One approach to selecting such forecasts is to use composite forecasting methods. This paper views the conceptual framework for forming optimal composite forecasts and attempts to identify circumstances when composite forecasts might work best. Then, Monte Carlo simulations and real world examples are used to compare composite forecasts with individual forecasts and to compare alternative methods of making composite forecasts. The appraisal is intended to provide insights into the potential benefits of composite forecasts and thereby provide some practical guides to the use of composite methods.

Abstract

The advent of the microcomputer has changed the environment for the economic model builder and potential user of these models. It is now possible to have large economic models operating within spreadsheets. This approach has proven to be far cheaper, simpler, and quicker to use than any mainframe modeling system.
