Bolivia (LATINMOD)

LATINMOD-Bolivia is based on the national Household Survey 2015 (Encuesta de Hogares 2015) which contains microdata for 10,171 households and 37,364 individuals. 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-Bolivia simulates personal income tax, social security contributions, and its main social transfers: Bono Juana Azurduy, Bono Juancito Pïnto, and, Renta Dignidad.
