lndicadores líderes, redes neuronales y predicción de corto plazo
AbstractThis paper shows a procedure to constmct a short run predictor for the GDP. We use the Baxter & King filter to decompose the monthly GDP on its three components: seasonal, business cycle and iong-run trend. Furthermore we estimate and forecast the business cycle using a set of leading economic variables. We propose that the complicated relationships among this variables and the business cycle are well captured by a non linear artificial neural network model. The other components are estimated using standard econometric techniques. Finally, the three components are added to obtain an indicator for the future behavior of the GDP. The prediction shows an aceptable leve1 of reliability, so the index can be used to take decisions in the private or public sector. The main advantage of the index is its faster availability relative to the oficial statistics.
