Forecasting Tournament — Road to Recovery

Metaculus is hosting the Road to Recovery forecasting tournament on mobility trends in the United States, in partnership with a transportation company.

Our aim with this tournament is to generate accurate predictions on US mobility trends to assist with transit planning during our current turbulent moment.

In addition to the reputation benefits you will accrue for out-predicting the Metaculus crowd, we will award prizes to each of the top three predictors:

  • $600 for first prize
  • $350 for second prize
  • $150 for third prize

These are to be awarded to the users with the highest number of points on the tournament's end date. A total of 16 questions will form the tournament.

There is one small addition: in order to be eligible for prizes, you'll need to make comments in the comments section, explaining the reasoning behind your forecasts or significant updates. Specifically, we require you to share your reasoning on at least 5 occasions over the course of the tournament.

All the questions that currently form part of the tournament may be found here. The rankings will be displayed here.
