There are a number of UK tax-benefit models that are regularly maintained and updated but they are usually private, expensive to develop and require specialised skills to use them effectively. The exception is the tax-benefit model UKMOD (a spin-off model based on the UK component of the EU model, EUROMOD).

This course will help you understand how to access and download UKMOD models, software and data and how to run UKMOD and do basic descriptive analysis. It also covers advanced topics in UKMOD modelling.
