How should you choose a forecaster if some are too optimistic while others are too pessimistic? FocusEconomics collects Uruguayan unemployment projections for the next ten years from a panel of 11 analysts at the leading national, regional and global forecast institutions. 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 unemployment forecast available for Uruguayan unemployment.
