    Abstract: Computing the growth of any entity over a time period is important for understanding the past behaviour and for future planning. ‘Compound growth rate’ is one of the frequently used methods for calculating the growth rate models. Among the statistical study was carried out on different growth models viz., linear, quadratic, cubic, exponential, comp... Show More
