In the previous Commentary, we correctly forecasted a further fall in the seasonally adjusted Scottish output index for production industries (Division 1 to 4 of the 1980 SIC) for the second quarter this year. But the extent of the fall was not fully picked up by the forecasting equation. The latest news release (10 November) by the Scottish Office shows a 2.9% fall in output in the second quarter. In the present forecast, we carried out a thorough test for unit roots and co-integration in the expanded time series used in our forecasting equation.
