The Policy Simulation Library DC meeting: Tax-Calculator model demo – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise21st February 2019
Join us for the Policy Simulation Library DC meeting hosted by AEI’s Open Source Policy Center to learn how computational simulation models are used to inform public policy decision-making. After updates from the community about various open-source projects, Martin Holmer, president and senior economist at the Policy Simulation Group, will discuss Tax-Calculator.
Tax-Calculator is a microsimulation model of the US federal individual income and payroll tax system used to estimate aggregate revenue and distribution effects of tax reforms. Tax-Calculator has supported many prominent users, including administrations from both parties, lawmakers, newspapers, and academic researchers. Tax-Calculator is written in Python.
Tax-Calculator recently joined the PSL Catalog, an open-source software library of public policy models. Everyone is welcome to the PSL DC meeting regardless of technical knowledge or experience, although please expect modeling code and results to be presented.
