simPop: Simulation of Synthetic Populations for Survey Data Considering Auxiliary Information

Tools and methods to simulate populations for surveys based on auxiliary data. The tools include model-based methods, calibration and combinatorial optimization algorithms. The package was developed with support of the International Household Survey Network, DFID Trust Fund TF011722 and funds from the World bank.
