A Freely Available and Documented Product

DYNAMIS-POP is fully documented, and all its components are freely available.

DYNAMIS-POP is created using freely available software. Its code - including the full set of statistical analysis files for parameter generation and estimation - is available for download.

The model is implemented in Modgen, a generic microsimulation programming language developed and maintained at Statistics Canada. All statistical analysis is performed using the open-source statistical package R. Statistical analysis files are documented and include statistical and graphical output of analysis results. DYNAMIS-POP has an intuitive graphical user interface and runs on a standard personal computer. The model documentation includes a step-by-step implementation guide which can be used as textbook for Modgen programming.
