This volume presents recent developments in microsimulation and public policy. Selected papers presented at an international conference on microsimulation, held in Maine in 1997 and recent thinking in the field of microsimulation as reflected in special contributions by some of the leading experts in the field are included. The volume covers a wide range of subjects, including: economic analysis, public policy analysis, static and dynamic microsimulation modelling techniques and related data issues. It also contains practical information on some of the models in operation. The book presents innovative analysis on public policy issues as well as methodological advancements taking place in the field. The theme of the 1997 conference was "microsimulation for enlightened policy formulation". Focus was, therefore, on practical uses of microsimulation in government policy although theoretical underpinnings also received considerable attention. The diversity of papers presented and the multiplicity of disciplines represented at the conference - government officials, academic community, consulting and accounting companies - reflect wide ranging recent experiences in the field from an applied angle. The volume is intended to both serve established practitioners in the field and, as a reference text, new students. It is a follow-up to the earlier volume, Microsimulation and Public Policy - A. Harding (ed.) in as much as it captures the developments in microsimulation since the conference held in 1993, in Canberra.
