Holden, K. and Peel, David (1989) Unbiasedness, Efficiency and the Combination of Forecasts. Journal of Forecasting, 8 (3). pp. 175-188. ISSN 0277-6693Full text not available from this repository.
This paper considers the problem of determining whether forecasts are unbiased and examines the implications this has for combining different forecasts. The practical issues of how economic forecasts might be combined are discussed. There is an empirical illustration of the procedures in which the properties of UK forecasts from the London Business School, the National Institute, the Henley Centre for Forecasting, Phillips and Drew and the OECD are examined.
