Abstract

Government is starting to address the policy challenges associated with population ageing and the future care needs of the ageing baby boomers. 'CareMod' is a spatial microsimulation model that is being constructed as a strategic planning and decision-support tool for forecasting the future demand for care by older Australians; the likely cost of aged care support; and the financial capacity of older Australians to bear a greater share of these costs. The aim of this paper is to outline the technical development of CareMod, including the 'regionalisation' methodology that underpins the generation of small area estimates that should help inform and assist with possible responses to these increasingly pressing social issues.
