The Microsimulation Tool of the MicMac-Project

In: Proceedings of the 2nd General Conference of the International Microsimulation Association, Statistics Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Netherlands Intedisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI).

We describe the microsimulation tool MicCore that was developed in the project “MicMac – bridging the micro-macro gap in population forecasting”. Based on a generic continuous-time multistate model with age- and calendar time-specific transition rates the MicCore was implemented as a plug-in to JAMES II, a general modelling and simulation environment. We outline the general software considerations and the specific implementation steps, illustrate the tool by an example, and discuss future extensions of the MicCore.
