Abstract
This paper is concerned with the contribution to forecast errors of errors in the estimated structural coefficients of a macroeconometric model (simultaneous equations). Its main purpose is to perform, on several "realworld" models, an empirical comparison of alternative techniques available in the literature for this purpose.
