Creating a Basefile for Stinmod

    Research output: Book/ReportAnthology


    STINMOD is NATSEMís static microsimulation model of income taxes
    and cash transfers. It is publicly available, runs on a personal computer
    and can be accessed via a user-friendly interface. STINMOD can be used
    to analyse the distributional impact of current taxñtransfer policy or to
    estimate both the fiscal and distributional impacts of policy reform.
    STINMOD applies the rules of income tax and government cash transfer
    programs to a database of income units representing the Australian
    population. This database, referred to here as the basefile, is a major
    component of STINMOD and the methodology underlying the creation
    of the basefile is the subject of this paper.
    The paper provides an overview of the major changes to the STINMOD
    basefile that have taken place since earlier papers on the basefile
    methodology were written. It details the techniques used in each of the
    three main steps that are required to build a STINMOD basefile.
