enter image description here Should I add csv as text in SO question? There's lot more data.

%matplotlib inline

enter image description here

reg = linear_model.LinearRegression()

Output : LinearRegression()

ValueError: Expected 2D array, got scalar array instead: array=10000. Reshape your data either using array.reshape(-1, 1) if your data has a single feature or >array.reshape(1, -1) if it contains a single sample.

I am not sure why I am getting above error. I have income lists of some years. So, I graph it. When I was trying to predict a data from linearRegression I got the error. I am new to ML(Machine Learning)

How to solve it? What am I missing?


The input to the predict method should be a 2d array of shape (n_samples, n_features), which in your case with one feature and one sample would be (1, 1). Therefore add a second dimension for the number of samples: reg.predict([['10000']]).
