Microsimulation Model Components

This is a moderately large collection of code used to build microsimulation models, mostly in the Ada language.

It includes:

  • Several specialist tabulators
  • An implementation of a Piecewise Linear Budget Constraint generator (see: http://www.ifs.org.uk/publications/2063)
  • Interfaces to various large scale sample survey datasets;
  • Utilities for building web interfaces in Ada;
  • Affordability Indexes;
  • Inequality Measures;
  • Data Re-Weighting routines
  • Tax Calculators; and
  • Optimisation Routines.

There is also an experimental complete South African tax benefit model, and some, but not all, of the code required for a UK Tax Benefit model.

We've taken the liberty of bundling four useful libraries with this code. We're very grateful to the original authors:
