Recent years have seen a rise in the number of methods and applications which require realistic individual-level data/synthetic populations. This trend can be attributed to a number of factors including increases in computational power and storage, a wealth of individual level data (for example, the British Household Panel Survey) and the development of new computational paradigms, such as cellular automata and agent-based modelling (ABM). Static spatial microsimulation samples a synthetic… CONTINUE READING
