Application of S-curve and Modified S-curve in Transition Economies’ GDP Forecasting. Visegrad Four Countries Case

Rafał Siedlecki , Daniel Papla , Agnieszka Bem


S-curve is usually used to describe economic or natural phenomena, which follow the rule of the logistic growth. In this paper we propose to use the modified S-curve, due to the “unlimited growth” phenomenon. The aim of this research is to show the application of the S-curve as well as the modified S-curve in GDP growth forecasting, using data from transition economies. This paper presents also the proposal of numerical estimation of the modified S-curve parameters. According to paper’s aims, we have posed the following research hypotheses: (H1) the S-curve and the modified S-curve are effective tools of economic development forecasting for transition economies; (H2) the modified S-curve is more efficient than ordinary S-curve in GDP forecasting for transition economies
