Country selection for WP2

In work package 2, ImPRovE researchers from ISER and LSE-CASE, with input from TÁRKI, AUEB and CSB will develop and analyse counterfactual scenarios for estimating the impact of policy reform on the evolution of poverty between 2001 and 2011. More in particular, they will extend the available policy scenarios in the European tax-benefit microsimulation model EUROMOD to investigate what the income distributions would have looked like if policy reforms between 2001 and 2011 had not taken place. This analysis will at least be carried out for Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Italy, Hungary and UK. The final results of this work package will be available before Spring 2014.
