NATSEM Celebrates 20 years

Posted 1 October 2019 1:47pm

In 2013 the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling celebrated twenty years of contributing to economic and social policy in Australia.

For twenty years, NATSEM has been a vital source of evidence-based research used to inform and shape economic and social policy across a wide range of public policy domains. The unique modelling capabilities of the centre has made real differences to Australian policy, including among other areas: developing research that has influenced welfare to work and aged pension policies; calculating distributional impacts of tax and social security forms such as the GST and Carbon price; providing evidence around an equal remuneration ruling for community workers throughout Australia; adding new regional dimensions to policy analysis and more recently,our research into avoidable hospital admissions contributing to a Senate inquiry. 

This important milestone was celebrated and marked by a number of events and special research output throughout the year. Two key events were NATSEM’s Inaugural Lecture and the International Microsimulation Conference.
