dc.description.abstract In this paper, we compare the forecasting performance of univariate noncausal and conventional causal autoregressive models for a comprehensive data set consisting of 170 monthly U.S. macroeconomic and financial time series. The noncausal models consistently outperform the causal models. For a collection of quarterly time series, the improvement in forecast accuracy due to allowing for noncausality is found even greater. en
