A graphical forecasting procedure is described in which 9 dependent variables are used, through a series of graphs designed into a nomograph pattern. A discussion of the several variables and references to statistical methods and parameters is set forth. Levels of accuracy and probable levels of accuracy are solved graphically. An actual forecast is presented to illustrate the scheme is shown with forecast tabulation tables to determine the weighted factors for entering the various steps in the graphs.
