Modgen - A Micro-simulation modeling freeware from Statistics Canada

The model DYNAMIS-POP-MRT was developed using Modgen 12 (Model Generator), a generic programming language (freeware) supporting the creation, maintenance and documentation of dynamic micro-simulation models. Modgen is developed and disseminated by Statistics Canada.

Two components need to be downloaded to use Modgen: Modgen itself (to develop or edit models), and Modgen Prerequisites (to run models as executable files).

Developing or adapting Modgen models require a C++ compiler; such as the free Microsoft Visual Studio Community Edition 2017.
