SIDD Simulator of Individual Dynamic Decisions

Helping to make best practice economic analysis accessible to all

A dynamic microsimulation model for non-specialists

The Simulator of Individual Dynamic Decisions (SIDD) is a modelling project that has been in development at the NIESR  since 2002.  Its purpose is to make current best practice economic analysis of savings and labour supply decisions accessible to non-specialists.  It has also been designed to reduce the set-up costs involved in adapting such methods to alternative economic contexts.  We have made the SIDD model freely available from this website, with the objective of increasing the policy impact of this exciting field of microeconomic research.

SIDD on Brexit

Brexit has come as a shock to most, leaving many people scrambling to work out what comes next.  Research commissioned by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, based on SIDD, suggests that the medium term fiscal impact of effects of Brexit on immigrant numbers is likely to be slight.
