A social forecast revisited
Mitton, Roger and Willmott, Michael (2005) A social forecast revisited. Futures 37 (1), pp. 39-50. ISSN 0016-3287.
In 1971, the authors produced a 30-year forecast of leisure in the UK. In 2001 they obtained survey data for comparison with the forecasts. The paper presents the original forecasts and describes the methods used to produce them, assesses their accuracy in the light of the survey data, and concludes with some reflections on the underlying forecasting methodology and on changes in leisure patterns.
