HC Deb 06 November 1968 vol 772 c95W
Mr. Blaker

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will give full details of the equations his statisticians have calculated relating imports to income levels and economic activity generally, indicating the period for which they were calculated and the data on which they were based, the regression co-efficients obtained and the relevant standard errors, together with the forecasting errors obtained when applying these equations to quarterly data over the past four years.

Mr. Dell

No, but I am considering whether an analysis of trends in imports can be published in due course in greater detail than was given in the article on forecasting in Economic Trends in August, 1964.
