EUROMOD is a tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union 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.

The updated release of the EUROMOD model (I1.0+) includes:

  • tax-benefit policies up to 2018 for all countries;
  • 2016 input data for all countries;
  • revisions to older policy systems and datasets (since public release H1.0+).

Country reports

EUROMOD Country Reports document the way in which each country’s tax-benefit system is modelled. They contain sections on:

  • an overview of the national tax-benefit system;
  • a description of the modelled tax-benefit instruments, with reference to EUROMOD parameter sheets;
  • a description of the micro-database and adjustments to the original data;
  • a validation of baseline output in relation to other statistics.
