PFL-CM (short for Paid Family Leave - Cost Model) is a model to evaluate the total cost of paid family and medical leave policy proposals. PFL-CM uses the 2012 FMLA public use file to estimate take-up, leave duration and other information, which is then applied to the 2017 Current Population Survey to estimate the total cost of the policy.
This model is currently under development. The model components and the results may change as the model improves.
