Seven forecasting blogs

There are sev­eral other blogs on fore­cast­ing that read­ers might be inter­ested in. Here are seven worth following:

  1. No Hes­i­ta­tions by Fran­cis Diebold (Pro­fes­sor of Eco­nom­ics, Uni­ver­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia). Diebold needs no intro­duc­tion to fore­cast­ers. He pri­mar­ily cov­ers fore­cast­ing in eco­nom­ics and finance, but also xkcd car­toons, graph­ics, research issues, etc.
  2. Econo­met­rics Beat by Dave Giles. Dave is a pro­fes­sor of eco­nom­ics at the Uni­ver­sity of Vic­to­ria (Canada), for­merly from my own depart­ment at Monash Uni­ver­sity (Aus­tralia), and a native New Zealan­der. Not a lot on fore­cast­ing, but plenty of inter­est­ing posts about econo­met­rics and sta­tis­tics more generally.
  3. Busi­ness fore­cast­ing by Clive Jones (a pro­fes­sional fore­caster based in Col­orado, USA). Orig­i­nally about sales and new prod­uct fore­cast­ing, but he now cov­ers a lot of other fore­cast­ing top­ics and has an inter­est­ing prac­ti­tioner perspective.
  4. Freakono­met­rics: by Arthur Char­p­en­tier (an actu­ary and pro­fes­sor of math­e­mat­ics at the Uni­ver­sity of Que­bec at Montreal, Canada). This is the most pro­lific blog on this list. Wide rang­ing and tak­ing in sta­tis­tics, fore­cast­ing, econo­met­rics, actu­ar­ial sci­ence, R, and any­thing else that takes his fancy. Some­times in French.
  5. No free hunch: the kag­gle blog. Some of the most inter­est­ing posts are from kag­gle com­pe­ti­tion win­ners explain­ing their methods.
  6. Energy fore­cast­ing by Tao Hong (for­merly an energy fore­caster for SAS, now a pro­fes­sor at UNC). He cov­ers mostly energy fore­cast­ing issues and job postings.
  7. The offi­cial IIF blog. Con­fer­ences, jobs, mem­ber pro­files, etc.
