Putting the results in context

Individual econometric models may include large errors, and should be interpreted with caution. Rather than relying on results from single econometric models, the best practice is to look at combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon 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 better with 0.0 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 0.0 percentage points.
