I have data of bank branches and amount of revenue they have generated in a month. The data looks like this:

enter image description here

I am tasked to find the expected revenue for the branch for the next month using machine learning. Initially I was planning to use LSTM networks for such analysis, but I doubt its possible with such small amount of data.

I personally think machine learning is an overkill for such task. What would be the most appropriate way to predict the revenue for next month? I thought about increasing the amount of data by treating every branch as equal and using the row corresponding to each branch as separate instance for training (but I doubt that is a correct approach).

Any advice would be appreciated

  • $\begingroup$ I have also encountered similiar scenario but in a different domain, have you soloved the problem finally with the small amount of data? How did you solve it? Was it necessary to utilize machine learning model? Thank you. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Anaconda unfortunately with data this little only linear regression was possible, which ultimately is not the model that can successfully predict the next outcome $\endgroup$
