Exploring Microsimulation Methodologies for the Estimation of Household Attributes

  title={Exploring Microsimulation Methodologies for the Estimation of Household Attributes},
  author={Dimitris Ballas and Graham Clarke and Ian Turton},
Microsimulation is a rapidly expanding area of spatial modelling, which seems to offer great potential for applied policy analysis. However, currently there is considerable debate on the most appropriate methodology for estimating micro-data. Household or individual attribute data can be represented both as lists and/or as tabulations. It has long been argued (Birkin and Clarke, 1995; Clarke, 1996; Williamson et al, 1998) that the representation of information on households and individuals in… CONTINUE READING
