Synthetic Control Method to Forecast Series
Not a new method implementation.
Usage of the Synthetic Control Method, see Abadie et al. (2011) <10.18637>,
as an ad-hoc approach to forecast series with panel in a specific context. The context being: There are units in different stages of a certain journey, there the assumption that the units’ behavior throw out the journey are similar is valid and there are not enough data to use traditional forecasting methods.
