Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The paper gives a detailed description of AMOS, a macro-micro simulation framework parameterized on Scottish data. From a macroeconomic modelling perspective, AMOS has two relatively novel features: the supply side is specified in terms of the microeconomic behaviour of 'representative transactors' and there is a wide choice over the precise form of supply-side behaviour. An outline of model software, a full model listing and illustrative simulations are also provided.
