EUROMOD EU Tax and Benefits Simulator
EUROMOD is a tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union developed by the Institute for Social and Economic Research, University of Essex and the EC Joint Research Centre (JRC). EUROMOD enables researchers and policy analysts to calculate and compare the effects of tax and benefit policies on household incomes for EU member states and for the EU as a whole.
