InGRID Winter School in Cross Country Microsimulation
A winter school on EUROMOD will be held at the Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Essex, from 21st until 23rd November 2018. The aim of the course is to provide academics, policy practitioners and other interested users with an introduction to the concepts, structure and functioning of EUROMOD.
EUROMOD is a state-of-the-art tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union, led by the Institute for Social and Economic Research. EUROMOD links microdata from household surveys and policy legislation in a single user interface.
The course will cover the basics of tax-benefit microsimulation, the logic and structure behind EUROMOD, working with EUROMOD’s user interface, input data, EUROMOD ‘language’ and using existing documentation.
The bulk of the course is dedicated to teaching EUROMOD functions which form the building blocks of the EUROMOD ‘language’.
