Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Hence, don't be overly confident the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than trusting the 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.

Results vs. other econometric models
