Project Director for Maintenance and Development of the TRIM3 Model

Microsimulation modeling is an incredibly powerful tool for answering questions about how safety-net policies affect families and for comparing the potential impacts of alternative policy changes. Part of what keeps me at Urban is the depth and talent of the team that develops the TRIM3 and ATTIS models and the NICC calculator. Over the last dozen years, the team used TRIM and ATTIS in a series of projects to estimate antipoverty impacts for national and state policy organizations and state poverty commissions. The results have sometimes confirmed prior expectations, but at other times they have surprised us and led to new insights. In the years ahead, we want to expand access to this type of analysis.
