It is usually neither practical nor ethical to conduct large-scale experiments in public policy with standard methodologies. One alternative for the ex-ante testing of policy options is to use simulation, a prime contemporary example being climate change projections. A tool – SociaLab – was developed for the counterfactual modelling of public policy drawing on longitudinal data from the New Zealand census and using microsimulation techniques.
SociaLab potentially provides an open-source tool for deliberative inquiry in policy development. It has now been fully written up in Simulating Societal Change, co-authored with Roy Lay-Yee, and published by Springer in the series Computational Social Sciences.
Registration Deadline is August 1, 2019 AIMS OF THE SHORT COURSE Introduction to the theoretical basis for, and development and application of discrete choice experiments (DCEs) in health economics. Hands on experience of the design of DCEs, questionnaire development, data input, analysis and interpretation. An update on methodological issues raised in the application of DCEs. Finite public resources coupled with an increasing demand for health care means that decisions must be made about how to most efficientlyFind out more »
