What is SORESI?
SORESI is a web application for Austria, based on the microsimulation model EUROMOD. The aim is to develop a web based tool for policy makers and the broader public to simulate policy reforms and to analyse their social impact, namely the effects on the national poverty rate, income inequality indicators and different income groups.
SORESI offers the opportunity to play around with such ideas and to see their effects on the national poverty rate, income inequality indicators and different income groups. For an example please view the Policy Brief “Social Reform Microsimulation (SORESI)”.
In 2018/19, SORESI was updated to 2019 policy rules (incl. introduction of the family tax credit 'Familienbonus Plus') using the latest input data (SILC 2017 with incomes for 2016).
