Upon examination of how much lower the percentage of employment was for construction and extraction occupations in the 2010 base projection year compared with 2006, it becomes clear that most, or even all, of the growth is attributable to cyclical factors.
Wind capacity factor slightly over the forecast (48.24% versus 47.46%) resulted in production and revenues that surpassed Fitch's base projection, while turbine average availability above expectations (99.48% versus 96.00%) and costs significantly lower than the budget contributed to higher than expected cash available for debt service.

Line 2 shows the effect on the Base projection from changing the assumption about the differential in the effective rate of return on direct investment, reducing the Base case spread of 4.75 percentage points (ten percent for U.S.-owned assets abroad minus 5.25 percent for foreign-owned assets in the United States) to an ultimate value of two percentage points (eight percent vs.
where [D.sub.s] is the moving average coefficient matrix associated with the structural shocks in the [epsilon] vector, the second term on the right-hand side is the dynamic forecast or base projection, and the first term on the right-hand side is the j-period-ahead forecast error.
Historical decompositions assign credit to the shocks to the variables in the system for the difference between what can be labeled the base projection for a series and the actual series.
where the second term on the right hand side represents the expectation of [Y.sub.t +j] given information available at time t, the so-called base projections of the elements of the vector Y,(8) and where the first term on the right hand side shows the difference between the actual series and this base projection due to innovations in the variables subsequent to period t.
As noted by Burbidge and Harrison |1985~, the historical decomposition assigns credit for the difference between what can be called the base projection for a series and the actual series to the shocks to the system's variables.
Federal Government expenditures are higher in the high-trend and lower in the low-trend alternatives than in the base projections. Conversely, spending as a share of nominal GNP shows the opposite relationship: high-trend government spending accounts for a smaller proportion of GNP and low-growth government spending a higher proportion of GNP than in the base projection.
