Forecasting Accuracy?
Hello all,

I need to include a reputable source for a benchmark of forecasting accuracy in a presentation I'm delivering on Monday. Does anyone know of any reputable sources of a benchmark that I can reference and where to find this? I can't find that this exists so far. It doesn't necessarily need to be a benchmark, it might just be an industry average for example.

Thanks in advance!
