Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Hence, one should not be too confident the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single econometric models, we recommend to rely on combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Comparison to other econometric models

In comparison to the average results of other econometric models Clinton performed worse with 0.6 percentage points, while Trump did better with 0.6 percentage points.
