International Economic Review, 1998, vol. 39, issue 4, 863-83
Density forecasting is increasingly more important and commonplace, for example in financial risk management, yet little attention has been given to the evaluation of density forecasts. The authors develop a simple and operational framework for density forecast evaluation. They illustrate the framework with a detailed application to density forecasting of asset returns in environments with time-varying volatility. Finally, the authors discuss several extensions.
