High-quality quantitative forecasting relies on a suitable methodology selected based on the historical data of each metric. GIV@2025 utilizes an approach that combines trend extrapolation and time-series forecasting. A regression model based on historical data and business development patterns is the first choice in analysis. If the forecast results obtained from a simple linear regression model are not ideal, then the use of a multiple linear regression model or a time series forecast method is considered.
