Forecasting is a common statistical task in business, where it helps inform decisions about scheduling of production, transportation and personnel, and provides a guide to long-term strategic. Economic forecasting is the process of making predictions about the economy. Forecasts can be carried out at a high level of aggregation—for example for GDP, inflation, unemployment or the fiscal deficit—or at a more disaggregated level, for specific sectors of the economy or even specific firms.. Many institutions engage in economic forecasting: national governments, banks and central.

In econometrics, the procedure used for forecasting can be quite varied. If historical data is available, forecasting typically involves the use of one or more quantitative techniques. If historical data isn’t available, or if it contains significant gaps or is unreliable, then forecasting can actually be qualitative. Quantitative approaches to forecasting in econometrics involve the [ ]. These can be used for forecasting sales of a new product. Another method to estimate future sales of a new product is the use of historical analogy, where the forecast is based on the pattern of a similar product’s sales. Quantitative Forecasting Models. These techniques use statistical methods for projecting from historical data.

What is Statistical forecasting? In simple terms, statistical forecasting implies the use of statistics based on historical data to project what could happen out in the future. This can be done on any quantitative data: Stock Market results, sales, GDP, Housing sales, etc. Statistical Methods for Forecasting is a comprehensive, readable treatment of statistical methods and models used to produce short-term forecasts. The interconnections between the forecasting models and methods are thoroughly explained, and the gap between theory and practice is successfully bridged.

Forecasting data and methods. The appropriate forecasting methods depend largely on what data are available. If there are no data available, or if the data available are not relevant to the forecasts, then qualitative forecasting methods must be used. These methods are not purely guesswork—there are well-developed structured approaches to obtaining good forecasts without using historical.
