If you were a consultant in charge of the next presidential Elections predictions, what would you make sure to account for in your forecast?

Election Polls Oversight: A reflection on Forecast Accuracy and Bias

The media, locally and internationally, has been labeling this Election

results as Unexpected, based on early predictions that did not realize.

We kept repeating in this class at various times that we should not use

software or mathematical model as-is without injecting our knowledge

of our environment, and resorting to tweaking few things to account for

that knowledge and for possibly intangible, non-quantifiable factors.

1) Discuss what you believe were the flaws in the Predictions made for

the Election 2016? Was it due to? The Method: Was it the way the polls were collected? Did they reach out to the

full spectrum of the population? (State, gender, age, education, occupation,

etc.)? How about the so-called sophisticated forecasting and statistical models

that were developed by Experts?

Bias? Was there a bias in the entities in charge of the Polls

Human factor: Could statistical sophisticated models capture human feelings

such as resentment, aspirations, fear, etc.

Other factors? Please indicate 2) What are the lessons learned from this? If you were a consultant in

charge of the next presidential Elections predictions, what would you

make sure to account for in your forecast?

Rules: This is NOT meant to turn into a political forum. Please refrain from

politically charged statements or any blatant endorsement of either

candidate. Granted the analysis most likely be touching on economic,

cultural, and political factors, but the intent of this exercise is to focus

on the PROCESS of prediction, and not expressing endorsement or lack

of towards any of the candidates.
