Simulator of Individual Dynamic Decisions
A dynamic microsimulation model for non-specialists The Simulator of Individual Dynamic Decisions (SIDD) is a modelling project that has been in development at NIESR since 2002. Its purpose is to make current best practice economic analysis of savings and labour supply decisions accessible to non-specialists. It has also been designed to reduce the set-up costs involved in adapting such methods to alternative economic contexts. We have made the SIDD model freely available with the objective of increasing the policy impact of this exciting field of microeconomic research.
