Investigating Improvements in the Accuracy of Prediction Intervals for Combinations of Forecasts: A Simulation Study

Abstract:

Despite a considerable literature on the combination of forecasts, there is little guidance regarding the assessment of their uncertainty. Since combining methods do not involve a formal procedure for identifying the underlying data generating model, theoretical variance expressions are not easily derived. We compare the ability of theoretical, empirical and a new nonparametric method to predict points on the forecast error distribution. Three different approaches to combining, i.e. regressio...
