Forecast citations

APA does not suggest formats for forecast citations.  We have constructed several examples based on APA style for other types of publications. 

Online forecast:

Author, A. A. (year, month day). Title of forecast (edition).  Retrieved from database name.

Title of forecast (edition). (year, month day).  Place of publication: Publisher. Retrieved from URL

Title of forecast section/part (year, month day). In Title of forecast (edition, pages, if available).  Retrieved from database name.

  • If published only online, do not include Place of publication and publisher.
  • Although APA no longer requires database information in citations to magazine, newspaper and journal articles retrieved from databases, forecast reports from our subscription online forecast services are cited as Technical & Research reports and, therefore, include the database name in the citation (APA Manual section 7.03).

Title of forecast book. (edition).  (year, month day).  Place of publication: Publisher
