Developing easy analysis

#1
Trying to develop an easy way to determine if a trending curve is increasing based only on the number of occurances yearly. We need to do this to over 300 groups. Each group would have its own yearly number of occurances and we would be looking for a growth increase in the future. Thanks...

Short of developing a custom program to crunch through all 300 groups, you'll need to do them all manually....

The typical "trend analysis" methods include:

(1) simple linear regression
(2) ANOVA-based trend analysis
(3) time-series analysis
