Assume the carrying capacity of the earth is 9 billion. Use the 1960s peak annual growth rate of 2.1​% and population of 3 billion to predict the base growth rate and current growth rate with a logistic model. Assume a current population of 6.8 billion. How does the predicted growth rate compare to the actual growth rate of about 1.2​% per​ year?
What is the base growth​ rate?
