Designing a user interface for a microsimulation model

Deborah Schofield

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


In the past, microsimulation models have been developed in-house by policy analysts. As a result, little attention has been devoted to developing a user-friendly interface. The development of a user-friendly interface for the static microsimulation model STINMOD, which conforms to current Windows standards is, therefore, a major step forward. This paper presents the development methodology and user interface design principles applied in the development of STINMOD. The process of prototyping an interface for a microsimulation model is also discussed.
