    Abstract

    In 1997, the dynamic Family Microsimulation Model FAMSIM, a microsimulation model for projections and the evaluation of family policies - was developed at the Austrian Institute for Family Studies, in collaboration with IIASA. The purpose of the FAMSIM project was to demonstrate the feasibility of a microsimulation model based on standardized international data sets through the development of a FAMSIM prototype for Austria. FAMSIM is based on the Family and Fertility Survey (FFS) that is available in standardized form for more than 20 industrialized countries and contains detailed event history data for a series of family-related life events such as partnerships, births as well as education and job histories. In a next step, the software necessary to run simulation experiments based on the model was developed by the author in 1999. Recently, the parameters for the FAMSIM model were estimated for the first time for five European countries: Austria, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Sweden. Estimation and simulation results together with the model are presented in this report.
