Forecasting Inflation Using Dynamic Model Averaging
Gary Koop () and
No 2010-113, SIRE Discussion Papers from Scottish Institute for Research in Economics (SIRE)
We forecast quarterly US inflation based on the generalized Phillips curve using econometric methods which incorporate dynamic model averaging. These methods not only allow for coeÂ¢ cients to change over time, but also allow for the entire forecasting model to change over time. We nd that dynamic model averaging leads to substantial forecasting improvements over simple benchmark regressions and more sophisticated approaches such as those using time varying coeÂ¢ cient models. We also provide evidence on which sets of predictors are relevant for forecasting in each period.
