Putting the results in context

In general, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, as they sometimes incorporate large errors. Rather than relying on results from single models, research in forecasting recommends to consult combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which includes different data.
