While plotting the CSV values, we have seen that there were some columns representing predictions of the world population in the coming years. We'd like to show how to obtain such predictions using the mathematical process of extrapolation with the help of curve fitting.
Curve fitting is the process of constructing a curve (a mathematical function) that better fits to a series of data points.
This process is related to other two concepts:
interpolation:A method of constructing new data points within the range of a known set of points
extrapolation:A method of constructing new data points outside a known set of points
The results of
extrapolation are subject to a greater degree of uncertainty and are ...
