New Working Paper: Using CGE and Microsimulation Models for Income Distribution Analysis: A Survey

By Vaqar Ahmed

Abstract

This paper carries out a detailed survey of CGE and Microsimulation models used in the evaluation of issues related directly or indirectly to incomes distribution. Different model structures are discussed which have been employed for country-specific, multi-country and region-specific studies. The paper considers the relevance of a relatively recent approach in modeling_linking CGE frameworks with microsimulation models, for the income distribution and poverty analysis. Finally we discuss the practical application of this methodology along with a detailed picture of some active CGE-microsimulation models. http://www.economics.nuig.ie/resrch/pdf/paper_0089.pdf
