The same kind of models are used extensively by the Commonwealth Government in Australia, and governments overseas. NATSEM is also part of the international microsimulation community, and contributes to, and learns from, the international literature in this field. This is the impact of the policy without any change in behaviour, for example, a decision to change working hours after a tax change.

One advantage of this model is that it provides quick estimates of short run effects for the policy changes that do not change economic structure significantly. It is well known that many social and economic characteristics vary by location. Incomes are different in urban areas compared to remote areas; and house prices are higher in one part of a city compared to another.

This spatial variation is essential to take into account when designing Government policy or conducting research, as it can affect service provision and will affect the results of any research done for a larger area.

NATSEM has developed a model that allows us to derive small area estimates of many characteristics that would not normally be available from other small area datasets like the Australian Census or administrative data. The technique also allows us to derive cross tabulations of different characteristics so, for example, poverty by age group or poverty by housing tenure.

The model also allows projections to be derived, using population projections from the ABS or State and Territory Governments; and projections of labour force status from the Commonwealth Treasury. The spatial microsimulation method has been used to derive small area estimates of poverty by family type; poverty rates for single aged pensioners; and housing stress.

NATSEM researchers have substantial expertise on spatial microsimulation, and Associate Professor Robert Tanton is a recognised international leader in this technique, recently winning an Economic and Social Research Council grant to meet other experts on spatial microsimulation in the UK.

Results are used to assess characteristics of the doctoral population and trends in doctoral education and degrees. The survey, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, collects the total number of graduate students, postdoctoral appointees, and doctorate-level nonfaculty researchers by demographic and other characteristic such as source of financial support. Results are used to assess shifts in graduate enrollment and postdoc appointments and trends in financial support.

Results will be used to assess research and development and other innovation-related data among the smallest businesses in the United States. The Business Research and Development and Innovation Survey, successor to the Survey of Industrial Research and Development , is the primary source of information on research and development performed or funded by businesses within the United States.

The survey is conducted for the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics by the Census Bureau in accordance with an agreement between the two agencies. The annual survey examines a nationally representative sample of companies in manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries. A pilot study was conducted in the winter of , and the full-scale survey will be conducted in the spring of Historically, the Federal funds data are collected annually for 3 government fiscal years at a time:
