Forecasting Inflation in China
() and José R. Sánchez-Fung
Abstract: This paper forecasts inflation in China over a 12-month
horizon. The analysis runs 15 alternative models and finds that only those
considering many predictors via a principal component display a better
relative forecasting performance than the univariate benchmark.
