Topics included in more than 20 papers included "Microsimulation as a policy tool", "Policy reforms and data issues"," Uses of EUROMOD within single Countries: policy evaluation"," Labour supply and making work pay"," Inequality and redistribution ".


EUROMOD is a tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union (EU) that enables researchers and policy analysts to calculate, in a comparable manner, the effects of taxes and benefits on household incomes and work incentives for the population of each country and for the EU as a whole. As well as calculating the effects of actual policies it is also used to evaluate the effects of tax-benefit policy reforms and other changes on poverty, inequality, incentives and government budgets. EUROMOD is a unique resource for cross-national research, designed to produce results that are comparable across countries and meaningful when aggregated to the EU level.
