Simulating Employment Location

As part of our ARCADIA project, we are taking employment forecasts for different sectors from Cambridge Econometrics input-output model, and then simulating location using two-stage regression. This in turn provides the inputs to our LUTI models. There is detail of the … Continue reading

Is Digital Simulation the Same as Physical Experimentation?

Simulation models test theories against data we cannot reproduce in the physical environment their theory relates to. We cannot experiment on the real thing. But how different are simulations from experiments? In Science in Age of Computer Simulation, Winsberg presents … Continue reading
