Overview

Each of the following products has its own wizard that allows you to run or save the corresponding executable file. Once you are ready to run or install the product, you are first asked for the language of installation. Next, you are presented with a license agreement which you must accept in order to continue. You are then asked to confirm the destination location in which to store the product, after which you can proceed to install the product.

Products have been tested on Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Model developers also require a copy of Microsoft Visual Studio (at least the Standard Edition; the Express Edition is not sufficient).

If you encounter any difficulties in downloading these products, please send an email message to statcan.microsimulation-microsimulation.statcan@canada.ca.

Modgen 11 (for Visual Studio 2010)

Modgen Prerequisites

Modgen Prerequisites installs all of the software required to run a model developed using Modgen. It includes a .chm (compiled help) file corresponding to the Modgen Guide to the Visual Interface. Those who are also developing models with Modgen must install Modgen Prerequisites before Modgen itself is installed.

Modgen

Modgen 11 installs all of the software and documentation necessary to modify existing models or develop new ones. It is not required for machines which will only be used to run models. In other words, machines on which no model development will take place only require the Modgen Prerequisites software, not Modgen itself.

Sample Model – RiskPaths 3

RiskPaths is a simple, competing risk, case-based continuous time microsimulation model developed originally to study fertility change in post-transition Russia and Bulgaria. Its main use is as a teaching tool, e.g. in courses at the European Doctoral School for Demography. It demonstrates what microsimulation can add to event history analysis and how demographic microsimulation models can be efficiently programmed using Modgen. RiskPaths has also served so far as a template for two other extended microsimulation studies in France and Canada.

Sample Model – IDMM 2

IDMM (Infectious Disease Microsimulation Model) is a simple, competing risk, time-based continuous time microsimulation model which simulates a hypothetical disease that propagates through a social network of hosts. The social network is constructed at the beginning of the simulation. Social interactions are then modeled as distinct interaction events that occur between pairs of hosts over time. The disease can propagate from infectious to susceptible hosts during these interactions. The social network changes over time, because in this model a healthy host has a tendency to discard sick contacts and replace them with others. Once infected, a host enters a cryptic latent phase, followed by an infectious phase, followed by an immune phase. At the end of the immune phase, the host returns to the susceptible state. IDMM demonstrates how large interacting populations can be modeled efficiently in continuous time using Modgen.

Sample Model – MicroParam 1

MicroParam is a simple, competing risk, case-based continuous time microsimulation model which illustrates how to use microdata in a parameter to create a starting population. This technique is useful as a starting point, or when the microdata file is relatively small. For larger microdata file, using a parameter to input the microdata will cause a memory problem. For larger microdata file, using a binary or .csv file is a better technique.

Sample Model – MicroBinary 1

MicroBinary is a simple, competing risk, case-based continuous time microsimulation model which illustrates how to use microdata in a binary file to create a starting population. This technique is complex and should be used only for microdata files that are too large to be copied into a parameter.

BioBrowser

BioBrowser is a companion application to Modgen which allows you to visually explore the longitudinal profiles of the low-level simulated entities generated by Modgen models. Sample files are included that allow an exploration of BioBrowser's capabilities without having to install a Modgen model.

Modgen 10 is no longer being developed nor supported. However, the last version of Modgen is available for those users who have yet to obtain Visual Studio 2010.
