Summary

The National Center for Education Statistics supported this conference as a first step in a dialogue among forecasters to benefit all in the field. Fifty forecasters representing 20 different federal agencies attended the day-long session. Objectives of the conference include: (1) to bring forecasters together for a forum to share information on data quality and sources, forecasting methods, and forecast performance; (2) to build a Federal Forecasters Network; and (3) to establish a directory of Federal Forecasters. The keynote address is presented: "Solutions to Three Forecasting Problems" (J. Scott Armstrong). The three problems discussed include: predicting the actions of key decision-makers, bias in forecasts, and gaining acceptance of the forecast. Work sessions presented include: (1) Topic A--"Data Problems" (William Sonnenberg); (2) Topic B--"Forecasting Methodology" (Paul J. Horn); and (3) Topic C--"Forecast Evaluation" (Debra Gerald and William Hussar). The conference agenda, a listing of participants, and a bibliographic listing of 64 federal forecasting publications are appended. (SLD)
