Abstract

Microsimulation is a natural choice when modelling rules applied to people or households. It is commonly used for modelling Tax/Transfer systems, which consist of a series of rules that determine how much a person pays in tax or receives in benefits (Immervoll and O’Donoghue 2001; Percival, Abello and Vu 2007). Other uses for microsimulation models are modelling eligibility to certain programmes, for instance, legal aid (Virtual Worlds Research 2011) and electricity concessions.
