The discrepancy in the quality of the estimated regression models and the inability to use some of them because they do not have the characteristics of good estimators, which leads to a lack of confidence in their predictive or estimation accuracy. The research aims to estimate the general trend regression models using the ordinary least squares method and compare the results of the estimation using the differentiation criteria (AIC, BIC, MSE) and to determine the optimal model as well as to predict the number of primary students in the holy province of Karbala for the time period (2022-2028). The researcher found the best suitable model for prediction, which is the general linear trend model, table 4, which represents the predictive values of primary students
