    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, we take a critical look at the factor-augmented forecast models, when a large number of time series variables available can provide the vital information for prediction. We discuss how to describe the commonality and idiosyncrasy of high-dimensional data by a handful of factors in various levels, and how to improve the predictive performance using these factors as augmented predictors.
