Micro-Macro Distributional Analysis Toolbox

This toolbox contains the codes used to run microsimulations linked to CGE models. It uses the IFPRI standard CGE model and the Tanzania Household Budget Survey 2000/2001 as an example to simulate a 50% fall in export prices in Tanzania. Two microsimulation techniques are implemented: a non-parametric microsimulation model and a representative household model.

AGRODEP’s new Affiliate Membership program aims to increase its members’ exposure to colleagues and experts outside of AGRODEP. By sharing data, economic models, and experiences with non-AGRODEP members, and by engaging with their peers outside of the Consortium, AGRODEP members will be better positioned to perform science-based research and to help address strategic development issues and relevant agricultural-related challenges through the formation of sound policies.
