Integrative Forecasting: Literature Survey. Exchange Bibliography No. 252.
Ehler, Charles N.
This bibliography surveys the literature in the developing field of forecasting, which incorporates policy-formation, planning, decision-making, and the policy sciences in general. Entries are organized into five separate sections. The first section, Alternative Futures, surveys the general literature on the future, including many historical references. The second section, Policy-Making, includes some of the best introductions to how futures-inputs might be incorporated into the policy-making process. Section 3, Planning, covers both the academically oriented and new, systems-oriented approaches to urban planning. The fourth, Forecasting Techniques, covers many of the methodological issues involved in forecasting and futures-planning. The final section, Selected Forecasting Techniques, is a partial listing of techniques that might prove useful for urban planning and management purposes. Within each section, citations are listed alphabetically by author's name. (Author/JG)
