A Joint Test of Superior Predictive Ability for Chilean Inflation Forecasts
Normally inflation forecasts are made at different moments and based on varied data sets. One would expect a projection based on a larger data set to be more accurate than one based on a data set nested in the former. To test this hypothesis, this paper runs a joint test of superior predictive ability on available forecasts for Chilean inflation.
