Survey of Professional Forecasters from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. At each survey date, they record the projections for various horizons in the same row. RGDP1 is the real-time quarterly historical value for the previous quarter—that is, the quarter before the quarter when we conducted the survey. RGDP2 is the forecast (nowcast) for the current quarter—that is, the quarter when we conducted the survey. RGDP3 to RGDP6 are the forecasts for the following four quarters. RGDPA and RGDPB are the annual-average projections for the current year (the year when we conducted the survey) and the following year.
