    Abstract

    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.
