|Title:||Effect of outliers on forecasting temporally aggregated flow variables|
|Abstract:||Economic time series are of two types: stock and flows, and may be available at different levels of aggregation (for instance, monthly or quarterly). The economist., in many situations, is interested in forecasting the aggregated observations. The forecast function, in this case, can be based either on the disaggregated series or the aggregated series. The forecasts based on the disaggregated data are at least as efficient, in terms of mean squared forecast errors, as the forecasts based on temporally aggregated observations when the data generating process (DGP) is a known ARIMA process. However, the effect of outliers on both forecast functions is not known. In this paper, we consider the effect of additive and innovation outliers on forecasting aggregated values based on aggregated and disaggregated models when the DGP is a known ARIMA process and the presence of the outliers is ignored. Results when the model is not known and tests applied for the detection of outliers are derived through simulation.|
