Mefisto - Flemish Microsimulation Tax-Benefit Model


With the MEFISTO model (Modelling and Evaluating Flanders' FIscal and Social TOmorrow), users can assess the distributional and budgetary effects of planned socio-economic policy changes on the Flemish population. For instance, users can check if a planned policy change increases the inequality of the Flemish population. They will also be able to check how the global distribution of income changes.

Mefisto uses the Euromod system for its calculation back-end. This is the first time that a user-friendly interface has been succesfully built for the notoriously intractable Euromod system.
