Book Description

Microsimulation and Population Dynamics: An Introduction to Modgen 12 (PDF) is a step-by-step; practical introduction to microsimulation in demography. It demonstrates how to use Modgen; a free and powerful microsimulation platform made by Statistics Canada. The authors’ hands-on explanation of model development will assist readers to make their own. The ebook teaches how to create and run a simple cohort model with a single fixed-rate event; and constructs upon this concept. It presents how to develop both a single state life table along with a multiple increment-decrement life table using the tools offered by Modgen. The writers show how to easily upgrade a current model by including new modules and new dimensions as determinants of a risk already modeled. The inclusion of a fertility module and a base population permits the user to bring new actors into the simulation and change a cohort-based model into a population-based one. The last addition of an international migration module allows the user to accomplish fully open; multi-regional projections. This available introduction will be of interest to students and researchers in population studies and other social sciences. It will also be engaging to anyone interested in the computational modeling of population dynamics.
