Argentina (LATINMOD)

LATINMOD-Argentina is based on the Argentinian household survey on Incomes and Expenditures (Encuesta de Ingresos y Gastos de los Hogares, ENGHO), conducted by the national bureau of statistics (INDEC) from March 2012 to February 2013. The database contained microdata for 87% of the population. LATINMOD is a regional tax-benefit microsimulation model for six Latin American countries that is being developed in the EUROMOD platform and within a harmonized data base which provides cross-country comparability. LATINMOD – AR simulates personal income tax, social security contributions, value added tax, simplified tax regime (monotributo) and the main social cash transfer AUH.


In 2018, a regional microsimulation model for Latin American countries has been developed. LATINMOD is a model that enables to simulate impact of fiscal policy on poverty and income inequality. In 2018 CELAG published a book presenting the model and the heterogeneous fiscal systems of the countries included. The book can be found here.
