Description of the Microsimulation Model

MPIDR, Report of Deliverable D8 of the MicMac project.

This document discusses technical background and basic design aspects of the microsimulation software in the MicMac-project. The software is based on the general multistate model. The Mic-software will contain three different components: the pre-processor, the Miccore, which runs the actual Monte Carlo simulation, and the post-processor. The Mic simulation-software is based on a general multistate model, hence state-space, the transition intensities and the specification of a starting population are the key ingredients for an actual microsimulation.
