Demographic Projections with DYNAMOD-2

Annie Abello, Simon Kelly, Anthony King

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology


DYNAMOD-2 is a dynamic microsimulation model of the Australian
population that is designed to project characteristics of the population
over a period of up to 50 years. The model operates with a 1 per cent
sample of the Australian population — about 150 000 records in the
starting population — and generates lifetime profiles of people in terms
of demographic events (fertility, mortality, couple formation and
dissolution, and overseas migration), education participation and
attainment, labour force activity and earnings.
This paper is part of a series of technical papers documenting the
structure of DYNAMOD-2. The paper covers two areas. First, it describes
the modelling of demographic aspects of the dynamic model including
the alignment of births. Second, it provides a brief summary of two
DYNAMOD-2 features that have not been covered in the other technical
papers — the modelling of young people leaving home and stochastic
variation in the simulation output.
