Description

A key variable in determining U.S. Federal Reserve Policy concerning Fed Funds Rates is the inflation rate in the U.S. economy. In this study, I developed time trend models for each month of the year using 2009 - 2017 as my modeling period. I then used the twelve time trend regression equations to forecast inflation levels for each month in 2018. Adjusting the forecast using the root mean square forecasting error procedure, I test for forecasting accuracy based on an error tolerance of 2%.
