(p.99) 9 Microsimulation
Systems Science and Population Health

Sanjay Basu

Oxford University Press

This chapter features a thorough discussion on how to determine if a microsimulation modeling approach may be relevant in terms of addressing a given problem in population health. It details the microsimulation modeling process through a series of examples, which reveal common applications of the method, pitfalls, and solutions adopted by researchers constructing and utilizing microsimulation models, and scenarios that may be amenable to microsimulation to address population health dilemmas. This chapter also identifies the key opportunities for the correct application of microsimulation methods to population health research. In so doing this chapter sets the stage for the reader to become familiar with microsimulation as a tool for population health.
