InGRID is organizing summer school about »Using EUROMOD for model family simulations«.
The aim of the summer school is to provide academics, policy practitioners and other interested users with an introduction to the concepts, structure and functioning of HHoT and EUROMOD. EUROMOD is a state-of-the art tax-benefit microsimulation model linking micro-data from household surveys and policy legislation in a single user interface. HHoT or the Hypothetical Household Tool is a tool for the simulation of hypothetical families, based on EUROMOD.
Requirements for attending the summer school are a basic knowledge of quantitative analysis. Familiarity with Stata (or another statistical package) is desirable.
Exercises are carried out using participants’ private computers. Participants will be provided with a free copy of the latest public release of EUROMOD to be installed on their own personal computer.
Participation in the summer school is free of charge
and potential participants may receive a partial reimbursement of travel and subsistence costs. Deadline for applications: April 15, 2018
