Book Description

An introduction to microsimulation in demography that is both step-by-step and hands-on, Microsimulation and Population Dynamics: An Introduction to Modgen 12 is available as a free PDF download. It walks you through the steps of utilizing Modgen, which is a free and robust microsimulation platform developed by Statistics Canada. The hands-on explanation of model development provided by the authors will assist readers in developing their own models. The e-book demonstrates how to establish and operate a straightforward cohort model using a single fixed-rate event, and it builds upon the foundation laid out in this idea. Using the tools that Modgen provides, a single state life table as well as a multiple increment-decrement life table are both developed according to the instructions provided in this article. The authors demonstrate how straightforward it is to implement an updated version of an existing model by adding new modules and new dimensions as determinants of a risk that has previously been represented. The incorporation of a fertility module as well as a starting population makes it possible for the user to incorporate additional actors into the simulation and transform the model from one that is cohort-based into one that is population-based. The most recent inclusion of an international migration module gives the user the ability to perform fully open projections that take into account many regions. Students and scholars in population studies and other areas of the social sciences will find this downloadable introduction to be of interest to them. Additionally, anyone who is interested in the computer modeling of population dynamics may find it to be an intriguing read.
