Save the date

“Microsimulation” is a technique that uses quantitative and statistical methods, and large and complex datasets, to project ex ante the effects and implications of policy reforms or demographic change. Microsimulation methods have been implemented progressively in a broad range of policy applications over the last decade: for example, microsimulation techniques have been applied to the evaluation of tax and welfare policy; labour markets; pensions systems; company behaviour; regional and spatial modelling; population dynamics; education; health service provision; income poverty and disadvantage.
