This study simulates the effects of a guaranteed minimum income in Greece, using the European tax-benefit model EUROMOD, in terms of: fiscal costs, participation (number of persons eligible for support), anti-poverty impact (poverty lines, headcount rates and poverty gaps indicators, reference population by age, by gender, by area, and by tenure), and work incentives (marginal effective tax rates). The input dataset used is EU-SILC 2010, adjusted for changes in labour market conditions, market incomes and tax-benefit policies in the year 2013.
