Multi-step Estimation for Forecasting.
The authors delineate conditions which favor multistep, or dynamic, estimation for multistep forecasting. An analytical example shows how dynamic estimation may accommodate incorrectly specified models as the forecast lead alters, improving forecast performance for some misspecifications. However, in correctly specified models, reducing finite-sample biases does not justify dynamic estimation. In a Monte Carlo forecasting study for integrated processes, estimating a unit root in the presence ...Expand abstract
