Abstract

Spatial microsimulation as a field has developed to facilitate evidenced based policy making in the areas of local planning and social welfare. This book has reported on the development of a model for specifically looking at the policy affecting rural areas. The Simulation Model of the Irish Local Economy (SMILE) has been constructed with this in mind.
