How should you choose a forecaster if some are too optimistic while others are too pessimistic?

These projections are then validated by our in-house team of economists and data analysts and averaged to provide one Consensus Forecast you can rely on for each indicator. By averaging all forecasts, upside and downside forecasting errors tend to cancel each other out, leading to the most reliable public debt forecast available for Canadian public debt.
