EUROMOD is a tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union (EU) that enables researchers and policy analysts to calculate, in a comparable manner, the effects of taxes and benefits on household incomes and work incentives for the population of each country and for the EU as a whole.
As well as calculating the effects of actual policies it is also used to evaluate the effects of tax-benefit policy reforms and other changes on poverty, inequality, incentives and government budgets.
EUROMOD is a unique resource for cross-national research, designed to produce results that are comparable across countries and meaningful when aggregated to the EU level.
The current version of EUROMOD represents the accumulation of technical developments and expertise over a number years and involving a large team of people. For more information about EUROMOD’s design and development, including a current project, go to EUROMODupdate2.
EUROMOD can be used to address a wide range of research and policy-related questions. For more about current and past research projects that involve ISER researchers see: Research and policy analysis using EUROMOD.
