basic part of a forecast
Basic Part of a Forecast
  • Level
  • Growth
  • Uncertainty
forecasting example gross domestic product
Forecasting Example: Gross Domestic Product
  • Value of final goods and services produced in an economy during a specified period of time
  • Measures the size of the economy and facilitates comparisons
  • Components
    • Consumption
    • Investment
    • Government purchases
    • Net exports (exports – imports)
real gross domestic product gdpc1
Real Gross Domestic Product (GDPC1)
  • Possibilities at Federal Reserve Economic Data web site (FRED)
    • Nominal versus real
    • Seasonally adjusted versus not seasonally adjusted
    • Frequency of data
  • Data Manipulation
    • Linear level or no manipulation
    • Change
    • Rate of Change
forecasts for gdp
Forecasts for GDP
  • Last observation
    • Second quarter of 2013
    • $15,681.0 billion
  • Estimate of billion dollar increase/decrease
    • $100 billion
    • Forecast: $15,681.0 + $100 = $15,781.0
  • Estimate of percentage change
    • 0.6%
    • Forecast: $15,681.0 x (1 + 0.006) = $15,775.1

  • Linear level in original units
  • Change from previous period
  • Change from a year ago
  • Percentage change
  • Percentage change from a year ago
  • Compounded annual percentage change
  • Continuously compounded percentage change
  • Continuously compounded annual percentage change
  • Index

Current observation minus previous observation

change from previous year
Change from Previous Year

Current observation minus observation from a year ago

percentage change
Percentage Change

Change from previous period divided by previous observation

percentage change from year ago
Percentage Change from Year Ago

Change from year ago divided by observation from a year ago

compounded annual change
Compounded Annual Change

Ratio of consecutive observations raised to the power

of the number of observations per year.

continuously compounded rate of change
Continuously Compounded Rate of Change

Natural logarithm of the ratio of consecutive observations

continuously compounded annual rate of change
Continuously Compounded Annual Rate of Change

Natural logarithm of the ratio of consecutive observationsmultiplied by the number of observations per year
