Forecasting

Five Volume Set
Edited by:


July 2011 | 2 104 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Forecasting has long been a core activity involving most if not all organizations. However, it is only relatively recently that it has become an area of intensive research. The earliest research was based in the core quantitative disciplines of statistics and econometrics. However, prior to 1981 there were relatively few articles whose primary focus was forecasting but with the founding of, first the Journal of Forecasting and then, in 1985, the International Journal of Forecasting, the field rapidly developed its own methodological perspectives.

At its heart, forecasting is concerned with evaluating alternative approaches to particular forecasting problems. Parts I and II cover the core methodologies of forecasting. Part III examines the evaluation of different forecasting methods and how to choose between them. Part IV includes studies that are specific to particular problem areas. This collection has interdisciplinary appeal and will appeal to researchers in business and management, organization studies, politics, and psychology.
