Micro-simulation analysis of social protection interventions in Pacific Islands

Summary

These briefs summarise the results of a micro-simulation analysis for four Pacific Island countries: Kiribati, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.

Description

Micro-simulation models are tools for evidence-based analysis of social policy interventions. Rooted in representative household surveys of a country's population, the models paint a picture of a country's income, expenditure and poverty levels. They enable researchers to simulate the impact of existing and potential new social policy interventions. These briefs summarise the results of a micro-simulation analysis for four Pacific Island countries: Kiribati, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. It analyses the impact of various social protection interventions on income levels, poverty headcounts and poverty gaps, nationally and by demographic group.
