TRANSOCEANIC CARGO STUDY. FORECASTING MODEL AND DATA BASE. VOLUME I

This is the first of three volumes presenting the results of the Transoceanic Cargo Study. It presents the three methodologies used for effecting the forecasts: exponential smoothing and trend extrapolation, functional forecasting, and share-of-the-market forecasting. The establishment of the trade histories and histories of the appropriate explanatory variable are described. Updating procedures are established. Forecast results of Transport Homogeneous Groups are presented. Special "trades" (the assistance programs of Food for Peace, AID and Military Assistance programs, Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and logistics support of U.S. forces abroad) are treated in terms of establishment of histories, development of forecasting or assessment techniques, and documentation of forecasts where applicable.
