The SimFin public finances simulator is now in open access
SimFin, our microsimulation model that generates projections of Quebec public finances, is now available in open access. The tool’s presentation page can be accessed by clicking here, while those who want to access technical documentation as well as the installation procedure can do so by visiting the SimFin page (in French) on GitHub.
This model bases its calculations on data from several sources. First of all, demographic projections come from the SimGen demographic simulator developed by CREEi. SimFin also uses data from Statistics Canada’s SPSD, the Canadian Institute for Health Information and public accounts and budgets produced by the Quebec government.
