Just evaluate the fit at your desired points.

>> load census;
>> curve = fit(cdate, pop, 'poly2')

curve =
Linear model Poly2:
curve(x) = p1*x^2 + p2*x + p3
Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds):
p1 = 0.006541 (0.006124, 0.006958)
p2 = -23.51 (-25.09, -21.93)
p3 = 2.113e+04 (1.964e+04, 2.262e+04)
>> [cdate pop curve(cdate)]
ans =
1790 3.9
1800 5.3
1810 7.2
1820 9.6
*snip the rest of the table*
