Published: 19 January 2012
... for female respondents to the 1999 French Etude de l’Histoire Familiale. Model parameters are applied in microsimulations of completed family size. We find that a population of women whose first unions dissolve during the childbearing years will end up with smaller families, on average, than a population...

...Thomas W. Pullum; Douglas A. Wolf Abstract Recent years have seen the development of formal and microsimulation models of the structure and dynamics of kin networks. These models generally assume uncorrelated fertility within and across generations. Several sets of real data, however, show positive...

... the ongoing change in union types ( Bennett 2017 ). Another challenge is the complexity of the interrelationship between fertility and partnership risks. In this context, the microsimulation approach is well-suited. Modeling a fictitious population based on the observed population risks of transitioning...

Efforts to address underreporting using microsimulation models, however, do not accurately allocate imputed benefits to true recipients. Moreover, recent studies that relied on linked...

Transitions between these states depend on parameters estimated from Dutch register data available for the period 1996–2017 and fed into a microsimulation model. To complete the partially observed...

They do adjust for the underreporting of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families benefits using a microsimulation model, but, as I note in my comment, several studies have shown that adjustments using microsimulation models misallocate imputed...
