Simulating the characteristics of populations at the small area level: New validation techniques for a spatial microsimulation model in Australia


These days spatial microsimulation modelling plays a vital role in policy analysis for small areas. Most developed countries are using these tools in ways to make knowledgeable decisions on major policy issues at local levels. However, building an appropriate model is very difficult formany reasons. For example, the creation of reliable spatialmicrodata is… (More)
