This post is an overview of the Social Policy Simulation Database/Model tool created by Stats Canada. Official Documentation and description can be found here. Please see our Microsimulation reference page […]
This post is a brief summary of the microsimulation approach taken by StatsCanada on several projects, as well as an exploration of how it may be relevant to a policy difference engine.
This sprint is all about showing the thing! We share our value proposition, our team alignment activities, user research findings, our understanding of the policy decision-making process, and the parliamentary consultation process. We also share wireframes and an exciting prototype.
This sprint, we looked at our progress on the Policy Difference Engine. We better understand our relationship with other partners, dive deeper into microsimulation, SPSD/M, and introduce our high level technical architecture. We also cover our agile approach, and the limitations of service design within government as we better understand policy implementation.
For our fourth sprint, Team Babel continued our work on ideating potential product pathways while ramping up our research on Microsimulations.
