IMF policy paper uses ISER research

The international impact of research at the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) has been highlighted once again in a new policy paper by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The IMF policy paper explores policies to address income inequality within countries and drew on six separate ISER research papers using EUROMOD as well as some additional data provided by ISER researchers.

EUROMOD is a tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union (EU) that enables researchers and policy analysts to calculate, in a comparable manner, the effects of taxes and benefits on household incomes and work incentives for the population of each country and for the EU as a whole.

Professor Holly Sutherland, Director of EUROMOD, said: “I am delighted that the IMF has found EUROMOD-based research so useful for its study on fiscal policy and income inequality.”
