Final Report - AIM-AP (Accurate Income Measurement for the Assessment of Public Policies)

Project ID: 28412
Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS

Abstract

This is the final report of the AIM-AP research project and includes tables and charts. Where appropriate, the resulting data and method enhancements of AIM-AP are being made generally accessible and re-useable by implementing them within EUROMOD, the EU tax-benefit model. The results of a number of simulations using EUROMOD demonstrate clearly that it is both feasible and desirable to incorporate non-cash income components in standard tax-benefit microsimulation models and, further, they also show that the distributional effects of various policy simulations may change once the non-cash income components are accounted for.
