Putting the results in context

Individual econometric models should be regarded with caution, because they can include substantial errors. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, one should rely on combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes different methods and data.

When compared to the average results of other econometric models Clinton performed worse with 1.3 percentage points, while Trump did better with 1.3 percentage points.
