Amos - a macro-micro model of Scotland

Harrigan, F. and McGregor, P.G. and Dourmashkin, N. and Perman, R.J. and Swales, K. and Yin, Y.P. (1991) Amos - a macro-micro model of Scotland. Economic Modelling, 8 (4). pp. 424-479. ISSN 0264-9993

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.
