Econometric Forecasting Model Definition

Econometric forecasting models are systems of relationships between variables such as GNP, inflation, exchange rates etcetera. Their equations are then estimated from available data, mainly aggregate time series (Clements and Hendry, 2002). However, econometric models can be used for many applications rather than macroeconomic ones (Wooldridge, 2009). Econometrics means economic measurement; applying statistical techniques to relevant data econometrics reveals the relationships among economic variables (Kacapyr, 1996).
