A Study of a Combining Model to Estimate Quarterly GDP

Various statistical models to Estimate GDP (measured as a nation`s economic situation) have been developed. In this paper an autoregressive distributed lag model, factor model, and a Bayesian VAR model estimate quarterly GDP as a single model; the combined estimates were evaluated to compare a single model. Subsequently, we suggest that some combined models are better than a single model to estimate quarterly GDP.
