Tax-benefit models such as EUROMOD are computer programmes based on household micro-data, which calculate each household's disposable income. Microsimulation can be used to evaluate the impact of current taxes and benefit policies on individuals' incomes and work incentives. In addition, the model is designed to answer 'what if' questions about different policy reforms, allowing the potential effects of proposed changes to be studied before their actual implementation.

Assessing the impact with microsimulation models. Authors at the european centre. Prof Holly Sutherland's contribution describes the past, present and future of EUROMOD. The book provides novel analysis on the impact of tax and benefit systems on individuals' incomes and work incentives. Not only actual policies are assessed, but hypothetical scenarios of interest to policy-makers as well, for example the introduction of flat taxes.

Tax-benefit models are used to explore alternative policy reforms, providing evidence .

Tax-benefit models are used to explore alternative policy reforms, providing evidence which can guide policy choices. A database representing the national situation in terms of the income tax base and beneficiaries of social welfare schemes is critically important for such models. Social welfare analysis permitted by microsimulation techniques is also discussed.

It briefly overviews the past of tax-benefit models in the UK from 1968 to present days - which in itself is an interesting story. Chapter 3 outlines the past, present and the future of EUROMOD. In Part III, national models are used to evaluate public policy effectiveness in a single country. Simulations were used to model the impact of each stage of the reform's implementation not only on the distributional income changes of families, but also on other social assistance benefits.

The distributional impact of policy changes is usually considered in terms of equivalised household income .

The distributional impact of policy changes is usually considered in terms of equivalised household income, assuming that each individual within the household is being affected in the same way, as a result of complete income pooling. The aim of this paper is to extend this approach by introducing a gender perspective in the analysis of policy effects. We use EUROMOD, the tax-benefit microsimulation model for the EU, to estimate the effects of changes in tax-benefit policies over the period 2008-2014 separately for men and women. The paper consists of two parts.

This book offers the first systematic assessment of income redistribution in Eastern Europe, within a comparative European perspective, and it demonstrates the future research potential of microsimulation techniques in this region. The book's chapters are based on a unique instrument -- EUROMOD: the European tax-benefit microsimulation model, which has been enlarged to include Estonia, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia and other countries. Tax-benefit models such as EUROMOD are computer programmes based on household micro-data, which calculate each household's disposable income. Microsimulation can be used to evaluate the impact of current taxes and benefit policies on individuals' incomes and work incentives. In addition, the model is designed to answer 'what if' questions about different policy reforms, allowing the potential effects of proposed changes to be studied before their actual implementation. EUROMOD goes one step further in the process of helping policy design, in allowing international comparisons between EU countries. This book offers an important demonstration of the effectiveness of tax-benefit models in presenting complex information in a concise and comprehensible way. It discusses what the barriers to their adoption to date have been and it looks at the possibilities EUROMOD offers to future policy-making in Europe.
