Using CGE and Microsimulation Models for Income Distribution Analyses: A Survey
This paper carries out a survey of CGE and Microsimulation models used in the evaluation of issues related directly or indirectly to incomes distribution. Different model structures are discussed which have been employed for country-specific, multi-country and region-specific studies. The paper considers the relevance of a relatively recent approach in modeling_linking CGE frameworks with microsimulation models, for the incomes distribution and poverty analysis. Finally we discuss the practical application of this methodology along with a detailed picture of some active CGEmicrosimulation models.
