A bootstrap approach to evaluating conditional forecast errors in ARMA models is presented. The key to this method is the derivation of a reverse-time state space model for generating conditional data sets that capture the salient stochastic properties of the observed data series. We demonstrate the utility of the method using several simulation experiments for the MA(q) and ARMA( p, q) models. Using the state space form, we are able to investigate conditional forecast errors in these models quite easily whereas the existing literature has only addressed conditional forecast error assessment in the pure AR( p) form. Our experiments use short data sets and non-Gaussian, as well as Gaussian, disturbances. The bootstrap is found to provide useful information on error distributions in all cases and serves as a broadly applicable alternative to the asymptotic Gaussian theory.
