Our annual FER examines how our forecasts compare to subsequent outturn data and identifies lessons for future forecasts.

The pandemic brought about the largest shock to the economy and public finances since the OBR was established. This report will look at its impact on our forecasts over 2020-21, and what we can learn for future exercises.

Our latest Forecast evaluation report (FER) will be published at 11am on Thursday 9 December.
