STINMOD is NATSEM's static microsimulation model of Australia's tax and transfer system. In the 10 years since it was first developed, STINMOD has been used as a tool providing input to Australian policy development and for research into the tax and transfer system. This paper gives an overview of STINMOD and recent enhancements made to its structure. It also discusses recent examples of the use of STINMOD in policy advising and research, including costing a paid maternity leave scheme and analysing the distribution of effective marginal tax rates for the working population.
