This conference, themed "The Value of Government Forecasts," seeks to highlight how government forecasters face the tradeoffs, the implications, and the impacts of their forecasts. The President, Congress, and policy analysts create budgets and allocate resources based on forecasts of, for example: Agricultural programs, energy supply and demand, labor force, medical costs, pollution, and transportation. The 2012 Federal Forecasters Conference will examine how government forecasters face these challenges.
