Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. In general, a good strategy is to not focus too much on the results of a single econometric model. Rather than trusting the results from single econometric models, you should look at combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Comparison to other econometric models
