Abstract
Uncontrolled human population growth has been posing a threat to the resources and habitats of Bangladesh. Population of different region of Bangladesh has been increasing dramatically. As a thriving country Bangladesh should artistically deal with this issue. This work is all about to estimate the population projection of the districts Noakhali, Feni, Lakhshmipur and Comilla, Bangladesh. By considering logistic growth model and making use of least square method and MATLAB to compute population growth rate and carrying capacity and the year when population will be nearly half of its carrying capacity and shown population projection for the above mentioned districts and give a comparison with actual population for the same time period. Also estimate future picture of population for these districts.
