I have an incomplete data set that looks like this: Imgur

and I believe that it will continue to form a sigmoid-like shape. How can fit a sigmoid curve to this data given my assumption about what the complete shape should look like?

I am trying to do this in R.

    $\begingroup$ I'm not entirely sure that sigmoid is optimal in this case, but I'd have to know about what you're trying to do to be sure. $\endgroup$ – John Mar 3 '14 at 14:45
