Anderson, Ben (2007) Creating Small Area Income Estimates for England: spatial microsimulation modelling. University of Essex, Colchester.
This paper describes results from a preliminary investigation of the value of a spatial microsimulation technique in the estimation, for each English LSOA, the incidence of income poverty as measured by the proportion of households whose income is below 60% of the GB median household income (HHBMI). In this report we present the results for 2001 using the FRS 2000/2001/2002 and the UK Census 2001 as well as for 2005 using the FRS 2004/5 and a synthetic restricted variable 2006 Census. We also discuss the results of validation against the source FRS and against other sources of small area income indicators including the ID 2004 income domain score, the Experian 2005 median income estimates and the ONS 2001/2 model-based income estimates for wards. The paper concludes with a summary of the findings and recommendations for further work. This paper has also been published at: www.communities.gov.uk/index.asp?id=1510768
