I am new to predictive analytics. I am trying to predict client volume (how many clients will enter a particular education program) over the next 5 years based on client volume data that I have for the past 2 years (2021, 2022).
Here are the data I have available - Client ID, Client Start Date (format: 2021-12-26), Client End Date(same format as start date), Education Location, Education Provider (there are 3 education providers), Start fiscal year, Start fiscal quarter
I have done some research and the seasonally naive model was one of the first one that jumped out but I wanted to ask your expert advice on how to go about doing this kind of work. Based on the data I have available, how can I go about doing the predictive analytics and which model would be the best to use?
