Behavioral Modeling in Micro Simulation Models. A Survey
MIcro-simulation is an approach to analyze the impact of economic and social policy on the distribution of target variables, not just on the means. It easily includes the true policy instruments and handles highly nonl ; inear relations. Most models currently used in policy analysis are static and they do not include behavioral response to policy changes, just their first order effects. There is, however, an increasing demand for dynamic modles including behavioral responses. This paper surveys current theory and practice in micro-simulation with an emphasis on behavioral modleing, and discusses issues of model building, data availability, estimation, testing and validation.
