Do Professional Forecasters Pay Attention to Data Releases?
The Warwick Economics Research Paper Series (TWERPS) from University of Warwick, Department of Economics
We present a novel approach to assessing the attentiveness of professional forecasters to news about the macroeconomy. We find evidence that professional forecasters, taken as a group, do not always update their estimates of the current state of the economy to re‡ect the latest releases of revised estimates of key data. Key words: Professional forecasters ; data revisions; inattention JEL classification: C53
