1 above, future values of the exogenous variable z were assumed to be known when forecasting y. This assumption is sensible for deterministic variables such as an intercept or a linear trend. However, for most economic variables, the variables themselves would need to be forecast when forecasting y. Doing so leads directly to forecasting from systems of equations. R. 2), which is the basis for much empirical forecasting in economics. 3, the focus is on the inherent predictable uncertainty. The predictable uncertainty from estimation is calculable, both analytically and numerically, but it provides less direct insight due to the increased complexity of the models.

Chow (1960) discusses forecasts from this model in detail. This first model (denoted M 1) is a static single equation: M 1: yt = bzt + ut ut ~ NI(0, σ 2) t = 1, . . , T, T + 1, . . 1) where yt is the dependent variable; zt is an exogenous variable; b is an unknown coefficient; ut is an error term, assumed to be independently and normally distributed with a zero mean and a variance σ 2; t is the time subscript; and the estimation and forecast periods are [1, T ] and [T + 1, T + H] respectively, implying T observations for estimation and H observations being forecast.
