synthACS: Synthetic Microdata and Spatial MicroSimulation Modeling for ACS Data

Share:

Firstly provides a wrapper to library(acs) to access curated set of American Community Survey (ACS) base tables which may be of interest to many researchers. Secondly, it builds synthetic micro-datasets of ACS data at any specified geographic level with 10 default individual attributes. Thirdly, provides functionality for data-extensibility of micro-datasets; allowing users to both add data attributes and marginalize undesired attributes. And finally, the package also conducts spatial microsimulation modeling (SMSM) via simulated annealing. SMSM is conducted in parallel by default.
